Book of Twisted Logic – 1

Book of Twisted Logic - 1

Havent sketched much ever since I shifted to Maximum City. Trying out my new rice paper sketch book, and this one’s first of a series I intend to continue with. Hoping I’ll have more to churn out, now that I’m in love with the paper..




Another one of my birthday cards.. (been a while since I made any).. Drawn from memory and a lot of imagination, with no photo reference. Also, no ink, paint or paper was harmed during the making of this work.

ps; some think my friend here looks like Jesus.. but he’s pretty darn bad-ass if you know what I mean. So I made him a nice velvety couch to plot his evils, and put his stud dog (Shifu) on his lap too (James Bond’s villain with the Persian cat, anyone?)


He came back yesterday. Pepper, as some of us like to call him, thanks to his beautiful peppery coat of fur, had run away on tuesday when the door was accidentally left ajar. His libido ran out, and hungry he got, so back he was scratching at the door meowing earnestly.. Today morning, as I worked on my laptop he cuddled closeby dreaming of all the salmon and tuna food he’d be getting very soon.. Lazy adorable idiot!

The Supersonics

Sometimes its a happy thing when your camera doesnt act the way you want it to,.. or what are watercolour and brushes for! This is an impression of The Supersonics gig I went for last week, held at (no prizes for guessing) Hard Rock Cafe, Pune. It was an energetic show, full of colour and youth, and the promise of a kickass band reunion (they were hibernating for close to 3 years). And what a comeback it has been 🙂

Left to right – Rohan (guitar, backing vocals), Avinash (drums), Ananda (vocals, guitar) and Nitin (bass, not in the composition but present in spirit)

Remembering Mohiner Ghoraguli

A publication project I had undertaken at design school, following the life and times of Bengali folk-rock band Mohiner Ghoraguli. Sharing the illustrations I had done as part of the same. Barring a couple of illustrations that were done using direct references from original band photographs, all artwork are based on my personal interpretations of their songs and mood. Sketched outlines using pencil, followed up by a quick brushwork with transparent watercolour inks in shades of sepia, stone grey, flesh tint, yellow, blue and red. Later scanned and cleaned up on photoshop. The 32-page book can be read here.
