Of Halloween, Chumbak-ing & More Gaga

Long time, I know! Been busy working on tonnes of things and documenting my diploma project yet here I am again :)

My niece, the Halloween baby Humairaa just turned a year old on Halloween. everytime I see her she looks cuter and now there are four tiny fountain ponytails and a whole lot of mischief to add to it all! This was a little illo I made for her birthday :)

One morning I logged onto my Twitter and saw a bunch of drunk Lady Gaga tweets dancing all by herself! My hands ached to draw a Gaga and here's my first, quick 'Drunky Gaga' illustration. Also, her father calls her 'Loopy'!

And now for some work I did for them loverrly, loverrly folks at Chumbak (there's no way you don't know about them, right?)! I had a whole lot of fun working on all of the stuff!
First up, a pack of Bollywood themed playing cards, 'Bollywood Masti'!
It took me a lot of time to figure who to include and how to stylize and yet be able to have a common language throughout. Also, it took a while to conceptualize on the Jacks (the famous Bollywood villains). But we overcame, and I'm pretty happy with the result :) You can get yourself a pack (or two) here

I worked on two A6 notebook designs, 'On The streets of India' & 'How to Kiss Bollywood Style in 4 ways'!
To work on the details and the gags was good fun and the 'kiss' notebook is even a mug! The notebooks, here :)

There's also a keychain design I did based on 'The great Indian Auto Ride'! I was skeptical about the details in the final product, but they came out great! Below is the design, and a horrid, blurred picture of me holding the final keychain. To get yourself one, proceed here :)

Lastly, I worked on 'Incredible India', one of 'The Small Picture' features by Manta Ray Comics. The Small Picture is a full page comic that appears every Wednesday in the daily Mint. The piece was scripted by Leela Alvares, who I worked with in collaboration on the artwork.
The piece was first seen published on 19th October, 2011.

More stuff to come very soon!
Feedback of all shapes & sizes welcome :)
Have an amazing day!
