Megha cycled for water!

Megha contacted me recently to very very quickly make an illustration for this wonderful initiative she's working on. Working with Milap she hopes to raise money to provide clean drinking water to villages in southern India, by participating in a cyclathon. It sounded like a really fun idea for a really great cause and I agreed to do the crash assignment.
Over an evening of giggles and tea, this is what I finally came up with.

Check out her page over at Milap, and if you're feeling generous enough, DONATE! (the donations work as a loan, so you get 100% of your money back, which I think is a much more dignified way of helping people out)

Why I love the beach...

After several restless weeks in a Bangalore that refused to let go of the wintery chill, a few of us decided a beach trip was due.
Ive never been to Gokarna, even though home town is just a few skips away. My first visit there and I'm in love.
And as is must of all trip-happy-hippy beach places, there was music on the beach.
Boy, leftmost on guitar along with two French gypsy jazz playing fellows made lovely music while I sat right next, sketching and trying to draw as much heat from the nearby bonfire.

And a customary sketch dump from the two wonderfully lazy days.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hello lady!

She's been sitting in my computer, scanned from an old sketch, for a very very long time. One semi drunken evening, I decided to colour her.
She smiled, sang to me all kinds of wonderful, strength filled love letters, stroked my hair and then gave me one big push when I needed it the most.
