Being creatively charged and following your heart...

Hello!

So since I am back I have been very charged up. You must have seen in my previous posts where I was all about how I love my routine and all. Well now I am back to disliking it. I just want to do some art and not at all be bothered by home crap. So my "routine-loving" phase lasted for exactly one week. Any way, I am glad that I have been motivated to create. I have been complaining of being stagnated in my art and wanted to break out. I have finally found some inspiration and have completely immersed myself in my latest series. 

So my latest art series is called "Imagining life with you" which is dedicated to my pet Toulouse. I have been moping and mourning for over a year now and instead thought of channelling my pain in a healthier way. Thus came the idea of giving him a tribute to my art works. Henceforth all my ink art works will have him featured in it in some way or the other. He is in my heart, my soul, my mind. He is everywhere for me, so why not bring him out in my art too.

This one is titled Turtle city. Basically my series is all about my imagination coming out on paper. Along with my Toulouse.

Titled: Come back home. 

I have more ideas to ink out but these are my two latest art works. Couple of days back I saw this lovely animated short film. It's an award winning Pixar-Esque short movie called Alike. Click here to watch it: "Alike"

 It sheds light on how society and school, kill your creativity. And I feel it is extremely true. Dad always told me that schools actually stagnate your creativity as a child. They are taught a specific way on how to draw a house or a flower. A very typical way, thus killing the child's imagination. As a kid, apparently my art was really good, till school happened.

My parents have always let the Sibling and I follow our dreams and choose what we want to do. Sometimes they too succumb to the pressures of the society but over all they have been extremely supportive. I found this art book my Dad had gifted me fourteen years back. "Do what you love", something we all believe in. I look at this note and feel very happy that I have chosen to follow my dreams no matter what the outcome. 


That's all for now. Do watch that short film, trust me it's worth your time!

Peace.

  2. It is so hard to loose a pet, we become so attached to them don't we. You're extremely talented and it is the best thing to do what we love and what we are passionate about. #mg

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
