Waiting for Daybreak

   Waiting for Daybreak

Sometimes the paint brush runs dry.
And the art stops beating.
Thoughtless sepia canvases lie awake;
Like songs that died on your tongue.

Old paintings are like old friends whom you run into after many years
They just look, smell and taste different.
You never quite know what to do with them.

So I gave her a wash in aquamarine and a breath of the sea,
Laced her up with a simple kiss, and placed her on my wall
And she slapped me back to life.

In Search of a Dawn

Hello my invisible minnions. I am back at my blog! Albeit for a very 'short' and incoherent rant .


This is a small graduation gift I made for my friend Gaurav Ogale, for his continued awesomeness of existencce. Do check out his insanely interesting delusional conversations with himself at his chai blog. The painting was inspired from a photograph of his.

Setting the Stage



A promotional visual for this theatre group,called Tanariri, started by my friend Neeraja. Plan to make more such pieces borrowing quotes from famous actors (with theatre history). Starting off with the great Sir Ben Kingsley.

Check out Neeraja's theatre initiative at their facebook page and do like it here https://www.facebook.com/tanariri.theatres?fref=ts

Freedom of Spirit


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

That 'One Day'


Shit.I just saw this film called 'One Day' by these guys from  Gobelins. Left me stunned. Watched it over and over again already a dozen times. Even paused,downloaded and played frame by frame to admire it. Shook me hard. Rattled me (in a good inspiring way) to the core.How on Earth DO PEOPLE COME UP WITH FILMS LIKE THESE !?

I was in this isolated sense of epic awe for two days. Then I snooped about and came across L ROSSI and his blog.He was one of the five students (I think it is five) who formed the team that made the film. It was so great to read his post on the making of the film. A lot of the things in there resonated in my head. As a student of animation myself on the other side of the world trying to realize my dream ,single handedly (sadly), some bits of that post really hit me deep down. Sort of ignited this fierce inspired angry passion to complete my own project once and for all,which has itself been dragged over the major part of the last one year.

Ok,I am a sentimental fellow alright.But every artist is in my opinion.And the guys at Gobelins,especially Rossi's and his team just showed us all that when talented artists get passionate about something,they create something truly epic.

Thanks Nix for haggling my brains into watch this film. I am so glad I did! Now dear readers,I humbly present to you the wonderful film - 'One Day'.

If this doesn't inspire you,I dont know what will.
