Musings of a chaotic mind


As usual I have been very moody about my art. I fluctuate from being a scatter brain to a highly focused person. Each day I have a new mood. It's not a good thing at all to be very honest. Affects my work and my emotions. 

After completing the book commission, I took a long break. Didn't lift a pen. Its funny since every minute of my day I think about art, so then why does it get difficult to pick up the pen sometimes. I have a commission to give in three days, and I am finally starting it.

 I printed out the design of Kerby Rosanes of Sketchy stories that says "Never quit drawing" for my desk. I really needed some motivation and when I see the work of my idols, I get charged up. So i am now having some really weird green tea given by my friend, will stick this drawing on the wall to feel inspired and get back to my commissions. 

Working on a Baby shower commission, time to start, and I really hope it turns out well!

Yesterday I read such a wonderful article on creative minds. Click on the link below to read.. 

Article on creative minds

I have never identified so much with any articles. There is so much truth in every sentence. It's actually a guide for those people whose partners are creative. This will give them a good understanding on how our minds work. I made K go online at night specially to read this. 

Do give it a read :)

I just finished having the green tea, it tastes good at start, but with time as it gets cooler, the  liquid becomes so bitter. My God, how do people have this. But I have been trying to "turn over a new leaf". Kindoff.

Reduced my junk, eating all horrible veggies (trying to) and going for regular 45 minute walks. I have to have a super figure by November 27th! :P

I hope I keep up this regime. I have done this many times, and lasted for maximum for five lets of now I have walked for four days (lol). Hope I don't quit this!

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
