Facebook is like a girlfriend by Rohitash Rao

041318 “Facebook” – Rohitash Rao’s favorite drug is Peanut Butter and Chocolate smoothies that aren’t cheap, especially in Venice! Enjoy this Snapple “Chaplin” short film with your favorite indulgence

TribeLA Mag: What do you prefer to work with, physically and otherwise?
Rohitash: I love working in every possible medium. But my favorite is just a pencil and piece of paper.

TribeLA Mag: What is your favorite indulgence? Do you cook? What is your specialty meal? What is your favorite restaurant in LA where you indulge yourself?
Rohitash: Peanut butter and chocolate smoothies. It’s my drug. And those drugs aren’t cheap! Especially in Venice.

TribeLA Mag: Who or what holds a special place in your heart? How does this factor into your creative process?
Rohitash: I have an amazing group of cheerleaders around me that double as friends. There is no way I could keep going without them.

Besides Rohit’s prolific animating and bookmaking career, he also finds time to paint. No matter what city he is in, he has always found random items of trash on the streets to paint on. His paintings reflect our cultural consumption created on the very things that we throw away. They are conceptual and clever and are a thought-provoking (and often funny) take on the way we live.
