A keen eye for detail

A keen eye for detail

Ron's doodle of the space monkey.

At first sight, Ron Goswami’s doodles would appear to be mere faces. Look closer, you would find hypnotic details: dragons, towers, ships, and aliens.

The 36-year-old IT worker doodles “to break away from real life”. Unlike regular art, colours play a very minimal role in his creations, as can be seen from the images put up ojn his website ‘www.pixbyron.com’ and on his Facebook page ‘Pixbyron’.

The uniqueness of his art lies in the fact that he sketches faces of people using intricate little figures.

Although he used to love watercolour and acrylic painting when he was young, studies and the pursuit of a career forced him to place his passion on the back burner; just like many of us.

The doodle artist rediscovered his passion two years back. 
‘’All thanks to my mother-in-law, who reminded me of my long-forgotten interest. Once she said that I went around the house trying to doodle different objects. There has been no looking back since then.”

When asked about his inspiration, Ron says that he looks everywhere for it. ‘’I am fascinated by people. So I trace the minute details of their faces with whatever pops up on my random train of thoughts,” he says.

While he initially only sketched his favourite characters and musicians including Slash from Guns N’ Roses, Sherlock Holmes and Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones, he later began to
doodling faces of friends and family and giving the finished artworks to them as gifts.

ComicCon Bangalore was a turning point in his life. “Till then I had never published or shared my art with the outside world. However, I got a great response at the event. I met many  artists and it was a good learning experience for me. A Dubai-based cartoonist even asked me for a signed print of my work; I was really surprised. After that, I became more confident and sure about my art.”

Today, Ron sells his art to clients online. He initially sketches an outline of the person’s face on paper, and later digitalises it using Coraldraw or Photoshop to make further corrections.

“The response has been astonishing. Some day I may look at this as a profession though it doesn’t look very likely now,” he says.
