Raju's Omelette is a tiny little kitchen-come-restaurant that serves eggs and pav somewhere in Baroda, and i have to say, the best eggs i have ever had. They owe their deliciousness to impossible amounts of butter, decades of residual grease and their special formula-X secret masala.
The indigestion that sometimes follows is totally worth it. Thank you Kalapi for introducing me! :)
That below is me. And a plate of boiled-egg tikka masala. *drool.
Isn't he sweet? He was given to me by my cousin, Chetna. (thank you Chetna, you're awesome! :*) I havn't come up with a name for him yet. Suggestions anyone? (Watch him hit a block and turn in the video. It's adorable)
Tomorrow, i embark on Project Sixty. Over the last year, i've been blowing hot and cold with my blog updates. Sometimes, the posts are overflowing other times my blog is in hibernation. :( Well no more! For the next (count the fingers below) days, i am going to put up one post everyday on my blog. No excuses. So don't forget to look out for the posts! (unless of course, i fail to put them up)
Whenever i start painting an illustration i keep a strip of paper beside me to test and prepare colours before i paint it in. The last illustration i made was so colourful that even the strip looked pretty by the time i finished! I added a little me on top to finish it off!
This is one of the illustrations i made for a short story from a collection of stories by children, for children. The book is called 'By Us, For Us' and is being published by Katha. (check them out!) It is another story form the same book in my previous post. This particular story is called 'Beaten Black and Blue' and is about one politician's suitcase that saves India from the clutches of his corruption. It's a lovely story. Do buy the book if you see it! (click on the image to see more detail)
This is one of four illustrations i made for a short story. It is part of a collection of stories written by children, for children, and illustrated by various people. The book is called 'By Us, For Us' and is being published by Katha.(Look them up!) The book is being launched on the 29th and i'm extremely excited! The story I illustrated is called Rover the dog, and it is a sweet story about Lila, who can't find her dog, Rover anywhere. She searches high and low and then finds him in the most unexpected place!
My friend, Kalapi, had asked me to create an avatar of him for his public profile on Twitter. After making a few drawings, I sent him the final one along-with a scan of all the doodles around it. To my surprise he ended up using most of them! I dislike twitter but i feel like visiting his profile just to see my drawing! :)
I converted another book into a monster. This one is called Sabhabathi. You can call him Sabby for short! I quite enjoy converting my books into monsters. I think i should make it a ritual. You can see my first monster-book here.
