Oh no, a talk coming up! Do I have to leave the house and do a good eyeliner?
Coming up this Sunday in Bangalore with Kerosene Digital Salon: I'll be talking about my comics journey, work process and some things about how actual communicating vs pretty pictures is important (maybe). Also new work and cool projects and answer all your questions (can't guarantee the answers heheh)
I might have free copies of InstaGyaan (everyone who's asked, please come by and pick one up!) and un-free copies of My Secret Crop (PayTM friendly only)
Swipe for pics >#
Venue: Sly Granny, Indiranagar. Details in poster.
Comics people Appupen and Solo (Sreejita Biswas) also in the line-up.

full versus not overflowing

I've been feeling so restless for a year now. No project is enough, I have too many books, why are taxes chee, illustrating and clients and photoshop can feel boring. There are so many big plans and dream projects for the future that keep me up most nights. Pretty sure I'll make them happen.
I wonder where I'll be next year. It's exciting. Not illustrating, that's for sure :)

"Bachao!"
Panels from 'Two', a graphic novel (Scholastic, 2017) I worked on for a year and half. Entirely hand-drawn with my beloved brush pen, this baby took everything out of me! I drew MANY bottlenose dolphins. And a lot of ocean. And took many liberties. .
I did the artwork for Helga's side written by Örjan Pearsson (The book opens with parallel stories on two sides) while Garima Gupta created Ganga's side, written by Paro Anand.
Available on Amazon India. LINK in bio. It's cheap now. Buy off! ( I don't really make money off it so please do it for the <3)

Pages from 'Two', a graphic novel I worked on for a year and half. Entirely hand-drawn, this baby took everything out of me so I guess I should share more of it.

I'm currently in recovery mode from an illness, and taking stock of allll the things I want to, or should (sometimes I don't know the difference!) be sharing more of online. It's hard to keep track, and working with publishers can be harder, but I'm using this year to cut the bullshit and just.keep.working.

Episode 2 of a new webseries called UnFramed by @curleystreet features me: a tiny peek into my workspace and some of my thoughts. YouTube link to watch in my bio ▶️

I have no idea why there are multiple shots of my hands(??) but I can assure you no marigolds were harmed in the making of this video. And my puffy, grumpy face is from back when 8am felt traumatic.
Also, quick round-up: I run my own design practice as an independent comic artist, art director and illustrator. 2012-now, it's been a ride <3. 2017-18 will have BIG changes. Moving forward!

Night sketchbook archives
.
I have days, weeks, months where I'm waiting for the first rays of morning light, making to-do lists in my head and feeling like my body's bubbling in anxiety. Warm milk (ugh), bits of exercise and positive people in my life can and do make those nights better and fewer.

With love from no-body ☄️

Sketchbook feeling lonely. Making a new comic for an anthology soon: maybe these are early drawings/characters? Also on the table/out soon: five (!) new book covers, one stickerpack (online types), editorial magazine illustrations for kiddiez, and two educational graphic novels. But this drawing is my favourite.

Interview with @thefloatingmagazine on what it was like working with @instagram . Thank you! <3 This project continues to give me so much love from around the world, and some excellent new people I'll hopefully be working with in the future. Link to read in Bio.

A quick ragamuffin during yesterday's drink-and-draw with my favourite drawing ladies. More drink less draw and one leafy ink on my arm came out of last evening.
