More of Meera

I like drawing this little girl. Her name is Meera, and she lives in a modest little home with her parents and younger brother. Coming up soon is a strip/series on Meera. These are some sketches that go into my website which should be up soon!

Fly On The Wall

This is an illustration for a friend's blog, this is to be the masthead. Param writes just about everything under the sun, places, people, travel with the focus being on design and design research. You can find his blog here.

And then I changed the beer to some good old filter kaapi, as Param pointed out that he doesn't drink beer at all! And considering he is a Tam-bram, we hit bulls eye with the kaapi! As all you 'naarthindians' may well know, we brush our teeth, gargle and floss with filter kaapi!

Rhea's 1st-Birthday-to-be-soon Card

One of the cutest babies to shine her 4 toothed grinny smile on us. The husband is an ardent and devoted fan of this little one and follows her around in a moonstruck way. Its her birthday soon and we've got her a cuddly Mr. Knick Knocks. I made this card for her, had fun making it!


Pottering around with some glitter paints and baubles on a lazy, dozy afternoon.

Get Well Soon Mithi

For a princess who is loved very much. May you get well soon and be up on your feet weaving your special web of magic!

Girl at Window:Two

14" by 22"
Acrylic on canvas
The second in the series. I need to revisit this painting. I cant make up my mind if its done or not yet. It looks much better actually, couldn't quite get the stark colours and the bronze tints in the photograph.

Girl at Window: One

14" by 18"
Acrylic on canvas
My first attempt at acrylic on canvas! I am still trying to get a grip on the medium. Canvas is so much fun! This is the first of a series of three paintings.

'Eyelet It Be' at the Lakme Fashion Week at Mumbai, 2008

Here's an illustration for Anuj's new collection of whacky clothes. The garments use eyelets. He wanted an illustration that would go with his write-up-tag with the garment.
I did these explorations first. We wanted an illustration that would go with the line 'eyelet it be'.
I wanted the concepts to reflect Anuj's attitude to life and work in general as well.
The eyes would have actual eyelets stuck into them.

We took the tangled hair concept further.

And then i put in some stars and dots and eyelets.

Yesterday was Anuj's show at the Lakme India Fashion Week in Mumbai, here are some shots of his collection. He got the illustration printed on cloth and tells me that along with his clothes (which without doubt are quite genius and were a great hit! Kudos!!), the illustration was well recieved too!!

And here is the man himself! I got the tresses right huh?!
