I've picked up this habit from my uncle. Collecting diaries and filling them up.... he just sits and doodles in them. Stacks and stacks of beautiful books with brilliant paper in just pen work - an occasional hint of colour here and there... He never thinks when he doodles..or he does but it hardly concerns what he's putting down on paper... i liked that bit.... my friends call it my trance when i sit at a stretch and just fill up pages one after an another... and its fun to flip through these books later... i read whatever i want from things i'd drawn some time ago...

In this one, I aimed at creating an image, slightly unsettling or intriguing using cut-outs,props and sets. I didnt want to use the computer for anything. The pictures were meant to have a slight narative to them...to provoke the viewer to think of a situation or to arouse curiosity... (this applies only to the first 2 pictures for now)
This one's done in acrylics... I improvised on
an old building i saw in Bombay... it didn't seem
to belong under that sunny sky...
The first canvas i did in a really long time...
and i enjoyed doing it... completely out of memory
at a time when i was obsessed with graphic novels..(i still am)

This is part of a project that i'd done last year... it was a short story that i'd created for an illustration course. I went through quite a process looking for the style i wanted to follow. The original look for the story never really worked out since i spent too much time per frame. I had a week and a half to complete the whole thing and i couldnt keep looking.... finally i came up with this one where i used photographs, illustrations, traces, the computer and mixed them all up...
