Post-it Pandemonium + Gaga This Way

I've been looking forward to this update for AGES now!
PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. Though you might need to open them in a new tab to see them in the resolution I put.
I'm obsessed with Lady Gaga, and feel very strongly about bullying as an issue, having experienced my share throughout my school life. With the Born This Way foundation launching and brand Gaga emerging generally all over the world, I was more than glad to have been asked by them folks at Manta Ray Comics to work on a comic on Gaga. And to think it got printed in the newspaper exactly a week before her 26th birthday! First seen printed on 21st of March in Mint daily.

So this is basically what delayed my blog entry, I've spent way too long cropping these and putting them together in more or less the same order as they were drawn! Either way, I've clearly dirtied way too many post its! And here they are :D I think all of them have been done while listening to music, which would explain lyrics that might make no sense.

I couldn't help but work on this illustration after reading Daniel Garofali's 'We're Human Too' Huffington Post feature. Yo can read the article here.

I think these conical bra-ed women are more Jeremy Scott inspired than Gaultier, after his almost catastrophic Fall 2010 attempt at them that Rihanna wore too. I got some gorgeous 300 gsm watercolor sheets, and filled them up with all the fluorescent I had. It's a pity the fluoro yellow looks plain yellow though :(

Me and my parents recently went to gurudwara Hazoor Sahib, Nanded and I won't exaggerate when I say it has got to be the most amazing place I've been to. That one space's mood changes with each passing hour, all hours of the day. So the little time that I got when I was not putting my jaw back in place, I sketched. I put it together horribly, though. There was too much compiling to do!

Sigh. I just realized I put up a lot o hand-done work after a really long time. I'm glad I got to 'Digital Detox', only to realize nothing can imitate the feeling of pen rubbing against some lovely paper.

Do leave feedback and have a happy day! :)
