Gearing for Inktober

Hi Guys.

Again a month late to update. Had too much going on but don't really want to discuss all that. So today's post will be more random I guess. Anyways before I go off topic and start rambling, I am super excited for October 1st. Any idea why? 

Inktober has arrived. So same time last year I started the Inktober challenge, which happens every october. Artists all around the world take part and create ink drawings each day of the month. 
 So 31 days, 31 drawings!
Last year I just did 15 drawings. Couldn't keep up with the challenge. This year I hope I can do 31. Thats my mini goal before I get married. I have to balance my commissions too, but I will definitely try to do a drawing each day! If you want to know more about this challenge then click on the link below. I am so excited. Thanks to Inktober last year my art got noticed and since then the commission requests have poured in. So I will be ever grateful for this challenge.

Moving on, I am as usual late on my Virgo zodiac artwork, I am late on my commission and have not posted a new drawing on my page. My weekends go in shopping for the wedding, and the other days I waste around mostly coz I am just sheer lazy. Not Cool!

So time to gear up! Here's a peek into my new drawing of Nefertiti. Lets see how it goes but as of now I had to keep it aside to finish my order which I will show you guys over the weekend. 



So that's all for now. I have loads of stuff to actually vent out but I have blanked out right now. Time to get back to my work, shall post later! 

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…
