Pages from a rather green book

So I still haven't had the time to do any illustration. Because, I'm too busy working on this magnificent project on Public Spaces and Hybrid Media. Which I shall write about later.
But for right now. Here's some very old pages of my green book.

To big eyes that see small things

My green book is severely neglected. Although here's a page from it. Sadly, I'm writing more than drawing. And I'm not writing so much either. But in the spare minutes that I get to do what I love, recently, I draw creatures with gigantic spectacles. 
A children's book illustration competition is coming around, and I must concoct a story and illustrate it quite splendidly too. 
I've been thinking about what it would be like to be a little colorblind child. To not be able to tell red from green, and yellow from blue. To see everything in it's simplest form. 
Then, to chance upon spectacles. Spectacles that are magical. Spectacles that let me see. And tell red from green, and yellow from blue. 
I'm thinking that the gigantic spectacled little boy/girl makes simple things quite colorful for me. 
And I'm thinking that maybe I have something there.

I feel weird today.

I don't know what it is. It's just that today is one of those days that makes me feel quite useless. I feel weird today. And I don't know what it is.
Now what?

The lost bird

The birds in Bangalore are missed.
People say their sights and sounds are lost in a haze of traffic.
Maybe so.
I'm keeping this one alive. And around.
Hello fantastical fictional birdy.

Twirly travels to Bhuj

This year saw some fantastical travelling. In September, to Bhuj, and in October to Calicut.
I'll say some about Calicut in a later post. But for now, let's look at Bhuj.
It was wonderfully colorful. They spoke Kutchi, and so I understood a significant amount.
I wish I had more time to write right now. But I don't.
So for now, imagine how lovely it was.
