I always found origami very fascinating. I tried hard but could never figure it out. One of the ways I thought I could get it right was by 'unfold'ing the whole structure, but by the time I would, it seemed impossible to get it back to what it was!
Though I was successful in getting the origami swan back to the sheet of paper...err... well, almost.

Funny how as we grow up, we change. Our eating habits change (in my case, they just grow), our lifestyles change and so does our choice of music. Well, so much for thinking I was over the Black Eyed Peas. Their much much anticipated album, the E.N.D. is finally out and I'm already weak in the knees. I don't know how they do it, but I'm addicted. So I look back at these sketches I did a seemingly long long while back. These were album covers I wanted to 'draw' for their albums, Monkey Business and their latest yet-to-come-out-at-that-time album, the E.N.D. and I pictured how I wanted them to look. Now that I look at them, I can find a gazillion flaws in them, some very very unacceptable, but I love them for the love I made them with. Brimming with nostalgia as summer vacations get over, I pack my world to take back to college for yet another expectantly eventful year waiting ahead.

OK. Finally an Illustration Friday topic where I instantaneously think of what I'm going to use. Yes, I am craving for a huge, luscious, creamy, beautiful, godly slice of wonderful wonderful cheesecake!
Any will do, lemon, blueberry, mango, cherry, mocha, kiwi or more!
So, any givers?
The one above is the version that I drew recently, the bottom one being an old drawing:)

Recently, my dear dear friend Kaveri Gopalakrishnan told me to about this site, Mooshy Moo, someone else had told her about. Its of this band that makes free music. It more or less falls into to the electronic genre. I'm not really a fan, but I happily downloaded all I could find and I must say, I'm hooked on to it. One of the songs, as the title reads, 'Dingbat the Singing cat', from Dalt Wisney's album 'Lifetime Psychedelic Dance Lessons' is absolutely addictive. While I was listening to it, There was this visual that came to my mind. So I drew it out. I didn't really picture it like this in my mind, but I'm OK with how this came out. Ah. The joy of drawing model-y things. And yes, This happens to be practically my second attempt at drawing a cat. Oh, and the song is fun. The lyrics go something like this :
'Dingbat, the singing cat,
She disappeared and that was that'
and now folks can sleep, sleep,
sleep till the break of day.
Meow, meow, meow.'
Ah. I end up writing too much. I need an editor.
