Nithin Rao Kumblekar, from  Bangalore, India, began his career as an Art Director for advertising agencies such as McCann, Ogilvy & Triton but after some time decided to branch out on his own to become a freelancer.

Nithin's passion for illustration started early, continued through school and since thereafter.  During his school days, he would copy from magazines and posters and recreate his versions with his own unique style.

Since then, Nithin has worked for many advertising agents and corporate clients such as Vodafone, Allen Solly, Britannia, Bingo, Kingfisher, IBM, Lenovo, TVS, ING Vysya Bank.. etc have all used his illustrations.

From Kyoorius:

Nithin graduated from Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat in Bangalore and did a BFA in Applied Arts. But as he recalls, his actual training started right in his school days when he met artist Punchitaya,who later guided him to the college in Bangalore where he would do his specialization.

When a brief is presented to him, he usually sets about attempting to chart the best possible way to illustrate the idea, followed by rough sketches which he admits can only be understood by him alone. He later fine tunes it to fit what the client requires.

As for his personal style, Nithin believes he’s good at drawing people. Landscapes don’t interest him much. He is a great fan of Michael Parkes. “Other than him, there are many online artists whose work I admire. Only a few names among these are famous like, say, Jason Seiler,” he adds.

Nithin says he goes online for inspiration. Behance, Deviantart, Abduzeedo are some of the sites he frequents on a daily basis.
