Hello!! I am Thomas Jacob. I am a micro artist and this is my story. The interest in colors and shapes started at an early age, when just like any other kid I use to draw and color using crayons, water color etc. But I was more fascinated towards modeling and shapes and the only medium I could find at that point was wheat dough which my mom used to make chapattis. I use to take few of them and make small human figures and preserve it by drying and painting them. But there was a challenge as dough could break, so I started to make them hollow from within. It was not a long lasting medium but taught me how to visualize shapes and figures.
It was at age of 10 when I got fascinated with micro carving on small chalk pieces. That was the time when we started using ink pens, and the pens at that time use to leak a lot. So we use to take small chalk pieces thrown by teachers to blot the ink. That’s when one day I took my compass and tried to carve a human face in the ink dipped chalk piece. That was the start of a new art form and I kept on making them. I didn’t had any reference or anyone to teach me, so practiced on my own. Over the years perfected my hobby into more complex and sophisticated works on chalk.
Same time I also use to do water colors, pencil sketch etc. Later tried to expand my interest into other areas like micro art on pencil lead, painting, realistic pencil sketches, rice art and paper cut art etc.
