Life, sketchbook

Late nights

When we first started living together, years and years ago, I didn’t see much of the brown boy. He had a crazy work schedule and whenever we were at home together he would be asleep. So I had loads and loads of drawings of him sleeping from that first year.

Bangalore Art – There was an interactive dance show that we couldn’t find anywhere, not even online later

Mughal Gardens – Did you know Delhi has these amazing gardens? Now we have to wait for next year.

Rashtrapati Bhavan – That’s where the President stays.

Nityan’s show – my very talented friend is also a great artist.

TRANSCRIPT

Weekend Art (Kelas)

We went for Bangalore History and couldn’t find it.

BB: Oh it’s not even mentioned here.

We went to Mughal Gardens and it was already shut!

Finally we went to hang out in Rashtrapati Bhavan. And the call of coffee was too strong to ignore.

BB: Not all kelas (flops: pun) – We went for Nityan’s show last night

Me: Trust you to draw a silver lining on my dark cloud…

Sketching in the sun

Last month we went on a little holiday to Goa. First we visited Marvin & Ellie in their beautiful home in Panjim.


We then went south to Palolem to meet up with some other friends.


The anteater came as well, spouting William Blake.

The brown boy in Paris

The brown boy had a fantastic time in Paris last summer.

He began by showing off the only word in his French vocabulary…
Then, he found posters of his favorite bande dessinées auteurs and ate les moules frites

He loved the quaint hotel on the top floor in Montmatre, and soon got used to walking up the hill

Charmed by the Mona Lisa, despite the crowds of Japanese tourists and their cameras, and inspired by Van Gogh,

he spent days drawing in cafés and only pausing to see some of the sights –

I think he will agree that we got enough inspiration for at least a year.
