" VISUAL ON WORDS OF ART CRITIC "
It was a interesting moment of my art life. i had created visual for a national art Critic , actually art critic always create the word on visuals art but i were created a visual on art critic words..ha
year 1999-2000 , i were working for Education Department as a book title cover designer i think i have done that part time job work 2 years, in that case one day a book publisher called me and invited at office of Education department section book publication "SHIVIRA PRAKASHAN" i were went there and then the book publisher was sited in a room with his friend cum officer of SHIVIRA PRAKASHAN" he asked me, can you create a title cover for me i were very active so i told him yes i can. then officer told me its very important title cover because the writer is a art critic , i did asked the name of that art critic to the officer ,he was smiling and he told , that art critic is Mr. "Prayag Shukla" i were happy because i had read him in my art history and i did buy his critical book "KALA SAMAY SAMAJ" i told to officer yes sir, i did read him but i have not meet to this great art critic. after this formal talk i were asked the title to that publisher his name i think MR. KEDAR JI VYAS, he told me the title of Pryag shukla book that was in hindi "TILI BHAR ROSHANI" the light of match box stick . i were came back at home and i were started the imagination about that title text i were created 30 something small layout for better result because i were working on a big project so that was very responsible work for me . because that title was NATIONAL ART CRITIC..ha
I were select my one layout for title design and i were created that in one day . that time i were not know about tool of computer .so i did all work by manual text writing and composing etc.
next day i were went to the Education office by my bicycle and submit my title cover then the publisher told me yogendra sorry you have paint the text in big size so please recreate it with small text that time the publisher was my first critic..ha
any way, i came home and again re created a new title with same concept and with some change on his critical point. next day again i were went the education office and i were submit my new title cover then publisher told me you are very advance and fast yogendra i like it. he was open the title cover and told me very nice .he were put his hand on my head and bless me for success..ha
