It's FanArt Wednesday again! This week’s chosen artist is Karthik Abhiram from Hyderabad, India. You can connect with Karthik on Facebook, YouTubeTwitterInstagram, and his website. You can purchase his artwork on Postergully

Here's a little about Karthik:

1. When did you become an X-Phile?

I guess it was as a kid, when the show started in the early 1990s. The early 1990s was when Satellite Television was introduced in India, and with it, we got exposure to a whole lot of programming. I think my interest in the show picked up more in the late 1990s, when the first movie came out.

2. What is the first episode you watched?

If I remember right, it was the "Pilot" episode.

3. What was your favorite part of the revival?

I haven't actually seen the revival season.  I didn't watch the last couple of seasons of the show, so I thought I should catch up on that first (or read the plot summaries online) and then watch the new episodes.



4. What inspired you to create X-Files fanart?

I am a huge movie fan and I love horror, mystery, science fiction and thrillers.  The X-Files fits into many of these genres so I found an appeal, and that's why I made the drawings based on it.

5. Who is your favorite character?

The team, Mulder and Scully. The show is what it is, because of them.

6. List your top 5 episodes.

The first movie (Fight the Future), "Ice", the Tooms episodes, and some of the season finales (I don't remember the titles).

7. Favorite X-Files quote.

"A lie, Mr. Mulder, is most conveniently hidden between two truths."

8. How has The X-Files impacted your life?

During the 90s, it was probably an early "fandom" that I was part of, and it was one of the early TV shows that I followed to a greater extent.

Thanks, Karthik! FanArt will be back in two weeks. See you next Wednesday with a new FanWorks!
