toaster craze in context

These are the illustration laid out with the article. (For your information, the article isn't really about a toaster craze. It's an interesting article about a new generation of nature writers and about mankind in general moving away from nature)

ooooooooo! toasterrr!!!

Don't get scared! This is an illustration that i made for an editorial piece.
Click on it! It looks a lot better when you can actually see some detail!!


yea. ok. i know. I haven't posted for AGES. The workload in college has been enoRmous of late because i decided to be flighty and shift from course to course. It's an oddly bitter sweet feeling; being overloaded with work you like. Since i took such a long break i'll upload a few thing at a go now. I'll start off with an image of how i've been feeling (somewhat) this last week.

Tamil Pride :)

Apparently this is a really old video but i just saw it today and i simply could NOT stop laughing. If you're tamil and you haven't seen this yet, watch it NOW.

I've finally decided to put up some of my internship work. Last summer i worked with a publishing house called Tulika and helped conceptualise and subsequently illustrate a book for them. It's called blackboard and is now available in book stores in god-only-knows-how-many languages. (Please buy a copy!) These are 6 of 18 pages. To see the rest you can pick up a copy!! (or wait until i post them up out of lack of anything else to post)
You can buy the book here.


I don't feel like working. I'm tired of college. All i feel like doing is running back home, which is now, unfortunately, in Baroda. Unfortunately, because it's Chennai i want to run to.(Don't mistake me Baroda's a beautiful place. I just prefer Chennai. You can't help but be partial to the place you've spent 13 yrs of your life.) Right now i wish i were one of these damn birds. Flying around in the sunset instead of staring guiltily at my computer screen updating my blog instead of working. :(

The picture was, ironically, taken in Baroda during a bird-watching jaunt with my mother.

Pavitra pin-up

I seem to have monsters on my mind for some reason. Pavitra here has a pin on the back of her head. Gruesome though that is, it makes her handy to attach onto my bag. :)

Admittedly these aren't the best pictures in the world. It's too late at night to take good ones, so i'll leave them for now and replace them soon hopefully. :l

Yakkity yak

AHA!!! I knew i MUST have something to post!
I made this recently as a header to put on top of the blog. I simply hated it as soon as i put it up :(

Im in the process of thinking of another one but till then i might as well put up my attempt!

lights will guide you home

Feels like i haven't put anything up on my blog for ages!
The impossible has happened. Not only have i started this damn blog, i've also gotten addicted to it. :(
Various possibilities for illustrations have been making jelabi patterns in my head for some time now but i simply haven't had the time to draw anything. However out of desperation to put something or the other up, here are some photos i took recently for a photo essay assignment in college.
I travelled to the city, alone, in the middle of the night to take these. To put it mildly it was a pretty eventful night. Me, my tripod and camera almost got run over, blown away, picked up, molested and arrested.

:) Needless to say, i had loads of fun!
