Free Spirit Festival Free Spirit Festival - celebration of Tibetan art and culture, especially reflecting contemporary life.

Passang Tsering

I am currently working as a Hardware Engineer at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics (IBD) Computer Centre in McLeod Ganj. I did my schooling from the Central Schools for Tibetans, Mussoorie, and did my BA from Chandigarh.

I have always been interested in arts. So I took Fine Arts in college, which I completed in 1998.

As computers are becoming a basic need in today's world, I also took training in hardware engineering, whcih I did in Chandigarh as well.

Throughout my time in Chandigarh I sketched with cartoons all the time.

My cartooning have nothing to do with scales or measuring instruments. I do them all with free hand.

The cartoons I am displaying in the Free Spirit Festival are the characters Tintin and Asterix. These are the two most successful cartoon characters ever created. They are my favourites also.

Others are politial and humorous cartoons which I have created to share with you all.
