FORM INTERNS SHARE TALES OF HORROR…

Shoubhik Ghosh, Dec 2017-Jan 2018

“The internship at Bakarmax taught me one thing: Drawing cartoons is not at all easy, and you need to put in your best at whatever you do. Also, Sumit believes that a story or an idea matters as much as the artwork,without which a comic becomes meaningless. Bringing out ideas is equally difficult. This internship not only made me realise these things but has also taught me to give justice to each and every cartoon I made in the future. Quoting Sumit’s golden words: There are many good artists who can draw, but if they cannot put their work out into a proper story, then it is of not much use.

“I was one such intern who just wanted to make some comics about funny life stories I have with zero knowledge of how webcomics work or how much commercially viable this field is. The internship gave me not only the basics of comics but an insight into the business aspects. The best and unbelievable part is the only person running all this, Sumit Kumar. The terms ‘boss’ and ‘mentor’ are of no use. You just won’t find a better person to work with than him.

“Got to learn a lot about the “business” part of design and how to successfully extort money from clients in under 4 months and also how not to make a chutiya story. This made up for the chindi circumstances under which I was overused during my Munduship at Bakarmax.”

Harish Iyer, June-July 2017

The experience I gained at Bakarmax was extremely humbling and enriching. Unlike studio, working as a freelance artist has its own set of challenges and perks. The experience under the mentoring of Sumit Kumar is invaluable, as there are certain things that institutes do not teach. One learns through experience.

. Finish > Perfect. This is the philosophy by which Sumit goes. We often do not finish an idea due to lack in skill set. However, finishing it will leave room for more ideas to explore.
. Let go. Too much attachment could ruin an idea. One must learn to let go and take criticism head on. I rarely saw eye to eye with Sumit, however, we used our disagreements creatively.
. Deadlines are real. Many nights were spent on worktable as a discipline to finish the work strictly on deadline.
. Know your audience. It is very important to know what you want your audience to feel while they experience your work. Take their feedback. Observe them.”

 

Harjot Singh, March 2017

“My 6 odd weeks at the Bakarmax HQ were filled with wonderful joy and it was an amazing learning experience. Every object had rainbows coming out of it and I was paid on time even after taking sick leave for 5/6 weeks. With a Bakarmax internship in my CV, I will now go ahead and conquer the world.”
