Doing what you love

If you’re like most creative people, you probably have a latent desire to do what you love for a living. The other day my friend Sumeet and I were talking about the very same thing -

TRANSCRIPT
The mistake that people make when they start to do something the love, is that they start equating that with success. But that’s not right – when you start doing something you love, your goals should be self-awareness, self esteem, the joy of work, and finally, creativity through play. Then, if success comes from that, very good. But if not, at least you enjoyed yourself and probably learned a little about yourself in the process.

A few days ago I got the chance to listen to Jan Chipchase here in Delhi, talking about the Journeys for Water project.

Happy birthday Nikon

My cousin Nikon and I were born only a few months apart, and when we wish each other on our birthdays, it’s always memorable. When we turned 17, Nikon said:

And now, years later, we collect strategies to deal with our impending old age…

…right down to our future old age home.

Life with Picasso, Art

I recently finished reading this book Life with Picasso, and there was much in that book that I wanted to remember for ever. So I made some visual notes for myself. This is the first in that series.

The children of the village

So, another day we went to Dhordo village in Kutch to meet some of the craftsmen.

While everyone was admiring the crafts, I went to draw the kids sitting outside and making bead necklaces. Each of them make and sell their own handicrafts to earn pocket money. While I was drawing, all of them gathered around and then took turns for me to draw them one by one!

Travellers

I was traveling more than usual in February, and spending a lot of time in those placeless places called airports. Needless to say I kept myself entertained drawing – and judging – other travelers. (Click on the images to larger views)
