Recently I was asked to come and attend the The Economist India Summit and create an illustration that would give a gist of the talks that were held. Standard Chartered and the Economist wanted to be able to gift a souvenir to the speakers at the conference. I've always been fond of sketching people and things they say, it's a great way to practise drawing and observation. I have also been sketching the things spoken about at Typo Berlin as well as Think in Goa in the past but this was my first official reportage assignment.
It was really inspiring to listen to most of the talks and hear business leaders of the world speak their learnings and concerns. The Economist's stellar journalists also asked some daring and interesting questions to the speakers. We all came out highly inspired from the conference.
We went through a fair bit of editing of text and fixed on a few key speakers with a quote each.
Later,the team decided that they didn't want to go with the faces as it might be offensive to some people to see themselves in a caricature! So we ended up with a no face solution:
All in all I had fun! Thanks for stopping by!
