A Breeze In Love

I just unearthed, one of my most favorite writings, and art work. For a special and obvious purpose, though it didn’t really serve the intend, this piece stands to-date as my favorite work. I hope you see and enjoy the meaning that goes behind these lines.

As a breeze on a summer day
I blew on you, on my way.
You closed your eyes
I saw your smile
Forgot the winds, I stood still.
Between the twirls in your hair
In love, I moved with care.
Even by your gesture, a slight hint
From a breeze, I turned to wind.

Each element you see in this illustration below has its significance, but then explaining it seems so lame at this tick of time.

The Purple Shade

On one of our visits to a botanical park here in Bangalore (LalBagh), my friend Jibin and I, picked up a dried bamboo stick. Once back home, with a little modification, we converted that to a beautiful interior decor. We call her…

Signature Smile



My first portrait sketching was in Aug 2009, of a girl. Ever since, I have been sketching a few female faces. Sometimes when you want start doing something you are really passionate about, and care about, you want to do it with someone really special. My first portrait was of someone such. Well, so when I wanted to do a male…who would have held the place other than my twin.

And all through sketching him, I started noticing how different it was sketching males and females. The eyebrows, the lips, the eyes… there’s a sea load of a difference. But I believe all the time and effort was worth it. Not the most accurate of sketches, but I really like this one, for a lot of reasons!

The reason I named this Signature Smile… lol, he has this smile he puts on while clicking pics…No matter even if there’s a cyclone or an earthquake… all he needs is the camera sound, and he’s beaming it already!

Here’s the details:

What more is blessed, than having another of yourself walk around. So similar that you think you have an attached mirror.

I would really love to hear your comments, and post your ratings! Thanks!


Face A Friend


I happened to meet Mizi on Facebook, through my school network. On a usual day, while going through my updates, I found this pic of her, and something in me just told me that I HAD to draw her! And voila! Well, I wouldn’t say I did justice to her beauty, but I couldn’t help not post it.

Do tell me what you think. And if you have comments for her, drop it in! She’s following this blog post. 😉

Perfect is an artist, who paints the beauty he sees. And imperfection, happens to be my highest quality!
