In love with Colors and dreams.

Interpretation of dreams, mainly with paints result in such work. I resort to realism with my own love towards colors.

Facebook Page Launched.

I was working for a long time on other graphic design stuff to feed myself. I was not getting time to do a big painting nor a theme coming into my head. Meanwhile, I was pretty successful to launch my facebook page

It was a collection of my rough sketches, watercolor experiments and digital drawings. I hope I can do both justice to both my blog and facebook page. I will get a great support from my father to keep the blog alive. Cheers.

The Lord

My recent visit to Varanasi inspired me to work on Lord Krishna, who has been my inspiration during my tough times of life. I read Bhagwadgita, when I was 14. Every time I read, I get a new perspective about life and myself.

Concern for Environment

Illustration says it all, we are growing rapidly in all avenues. But it seems we are not bothered at what cost. We fail to protect our environment, hence the result is global warming, frequent weather changes etc.

Cover Title

Balbharati, one of the popular children's magazine in India. I am associated with them for a quiet a long time, and .. this is my latest take.

First Take

I came across a wonderful painting software, Corel Painter. I am amazed and inspired by the work of Tod Harris and his approach for painter. I found the software quite user friendly for artist. It has amazing brush collection and a wonderful palette to mix colors. I haven't done anything realistic, but this is my take on corel.

Global Warming

We are responsible for it. We are answerable to the coming generation.
