IBM Creatives continues to grow.  For this week, we’ve added several new IBM Creatives from Belgium, India, Italy, and the USA with some fascinating creative pursuits.  We have a first-time novelist, a scroll saw wood artist, a rock n’ roll cover band that has played in Chicago for the past 2 years, and a photographer who prefers black and white film over digital for the physical dimension of photography.  Here’s a quick list:

  • New Artists – Nancy Harsch (USA), Dan Reusche (USA), Chelita Riley (USA), Christof Simon (Belgium), Debra Singer-Harter (USA)
  • New Photographers – Alfred Ajit K (India), Michele Borioli (Italy)
  • New Writers – Bethany Baxter (USA)
  • New Performing Artists – Ken Carollo (USA), Andrea Ghirardo (Italy), Terry Longstreth (USA)

Nirupam Das Watercolor Painting   Our second featured IBM Creative is Nirupam Das, a Database Administrator in Kolkata, India.  Nirupam likes to paint in watercolor during his free time.  He has been painting since his school days, and first became interested in painting at that time as he discovered that he had a passion for playing with color.  He chose watercolor as his medium because it’s easily available, and he likes to paint landscapes and scenery.  His painting style is primarily realistic, and the message he tries to convey in his work is to be oneself and fulfill your dream.  He is inspired by various artists, but one artist in particular that he admires is Nandalal Bose, a notable painter of the Bengal school of art whose paintings have been declared as ‘art treasures’ by the Government of India.  Nirupam finds time to paint during the weekends and holidays, and, as for future plans, he hopes to arrange an exhibition of his art in the future.  The main advice he would pass along to other IBM Creatives is this – ‘beside your daily office job, take some time out and brush up your own talent’.

Thanks Nirupam for being our second featured IBM Creative!

Welcome to IBM Creatives – a new community that is being established to help all IBM Creatives discover, connect, be inspired by, and learn from each other!

Our first featured IBM Creative is Mike Barnhouse, an IBM Project Manager in Winnsboro, Texas. In his spare time, Mike has created a comic strip called Small Town Tom, which is now syndicated in 74 newspapers and has a readership of more than 400,000. Mike was actually interviewed by one of the newspapers that runs his comic, and you can listen to that interview here. Mike got his inspiration for the comic strip from his own personal experience after moving to a small town of 3,500 after living in larger cities like Dallas, Raleigh, and Austin. To learn more about Mike and his comic creative pursuit, check out the video and links below:
