Rainy Revelations

Hi!

Suddenly it has been raining crazily since two days. I love rains, but it kind off spreads a weird melancholic feeling around. But then when I see this picture, that feeling goes. 

Toulouse is utterly the cutest living thing I know.

I saw three movies last weekend. K and I are like the ultimate movie buffs. We consider a weekend incomplete if we do not watch a movie. So this time we saw three back to back movies over the weekend. All three different and fun in its own way. 

So we saw Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Honestly I do not expect much from Salman Khan movies, but this was definitely a wonderful surprise. Such a lovely story, amazing direction, great content. The girl steals your heart with her innocence and Salman has for a change underplayed his acting.
Thus over all the result was so good! Please go watch it, its definitely worth your three hours. 

We then saw Inside Out! Brilliant is not the word! Inside Out shows how your feelings work. They have made amazing characters like "joy" "fear" "sadness" "anger" and "disgust". Perfect! I think I shall draw all of them! Watch it!! I loved the way they have shown the role of each character (feeling). Especially the end!

The third movie was Baahubali. I cant believe they spent 250 crores on it!
The effects are crazy, and the war scenes are superb. I did not expect south indian cinema to be so amazing when it comes to the effects. However even though the story line is nice, certain elements of the movie are very typical "southie". This many may not like. The songs suck. So that kind of kills the mood. The ending is abrupt at a very crucial part, and then  the continuation will come next year. I liked it, it wasn't bad. But yea, it could be shorter and some stupid love songs could be chucked out. 

Nevertheless it was a blast watching these three, and especially good since I got to eat Dunkin Donuts burgers and brownies! So yay!

Coming to my art, here's my latest artwork on the Cancerian zodiac. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. Worked very hard on the shading. Took nearly twelve hours. Now next is Leo!

I also held a mini doodle giveaway for my fans. So what I told them was to comment in the facebook post as to what they would like me to doodle. K would then randomly choose a winner. I would then doodle an A5 size doodle of their choice and send it to them! Got a lovely response and we selected two winners. One has asked for a "Tinkerbell" doodle, and the other is a doodle on the word "liberate" integrating the teachings of Shiva, Buddha and Mahavira. So I need to start working on that.


I have loads more to talk about but will do so in the next post. Going for dinner now!

Peace!

Of Modi's and mints...

"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…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

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…
