Another trip to Chennai

This is a late update. Have been busy with my stopmotion project. Unusually busy. But I've been wanting to write about my second trip to Chennai which happened quite a while back as I went to my sister's to chill. As much as I found the place strange earlier; I couldn't help but love the flavorsome city. There was too much to do, and me falling sick was trying to make it worse. I thankfully recovered, but only at the end of the trip. The place where they lived was absolutely beautiful. Right next to a hill with a shrine on top of it. The wind, the 'fruit shop', the beach. There was too much to take in. All put together in a lovely coconut that Chennai is. My sister has now shifted to Bangalore; and we will miss the city, always.
Here are some of the sketches I did there with my brush pen.

A shady couple on the beach:)

My brother-in-law and my sister at the beach.

My sister at home switching from channel to channel; an age old habit.

A construction happening somewhere on the hilltop shrine.

People praying as I shamelessly sketch.

More people and a lot of wind. And a couple.

I follow a couple in the dark as I try to draw them while walking.

And some more of my favorite thing to draw, people.

What a lovely experience. Made possible by my sister and her husband. Thanks. A lot:)

Climate Changes

My entry for the British Council Cartoon Contest for Climate Change.
Topic chosen: Melting of Ice Caps.
The event was judged by two amazing cartoonists, Ajit Ninan and Martin Rowson. I happened to bag the third prize.The craziest part was when Ajit Ninan pulled my cheek on stage as I went to get the prize and I also got an autograph of Martin Rowson on a book of his I had. I was almost in tears. This goes on to become one of the coolest things that have happened to my life:)

An online poll on the British Council website is on so you can vote for your 5 best entries. Vote HERE.

Do leave feedback on my entry though:)

Like Tea and Water

I drew a girl. Another one. She wanted to be colorful but fate had other plans. I saw a plastic cup of leftover tea and colored her up from head to... erm.. calves. She still looks just as happy:)

A day when you just don't want to use a pen or a pencil.

Feedback of anyanyANY sort welcome:)

My set of watercolors continues to be my best friend as I find inspiration in more unclothed floating beings on a hopeless day to restore faith in life:)

Have a sexy inspiring day!
