What better way to test my pens and paints than to draw a page full of a loved one?

Going Bananas

This bunch of bananas grew at my mom-in-law's house. This bunch had a baby bunch in front of it too - pretty rare! We had all the fun eating and distributing it..
Most of the baby bunch plantains for frozen, for probably banana smoothie or something.. :)

Sooryansh was at his pose-best when he was concentrating on enjoying his favorite animation playlist on youtube.. I had collected a few songs on the net and created this playlist for the elder one about 3 years back.. But seeing the younger one too enjoy it so much, I am convinced, I should make that a public playlist - let all the kids enjoy it..

Even after living all these years eating South Indian food, and after being married to a Malayali since the past 7 and something years, I still don't know how to cut open a coconut. From the past few days I have taken up the challenge to master it.. Lol.. This was my second coconut broken open in 36 blows! :) :) Phew! Hard work!

This was part of a page entry of my journal. I wanted to save Tanush's handiwork too; for he too had stamped the page with his imaginative coloring.

Known Faces

What do I do when, at midnight, I have this incredible artist's block and yet can't go to sleep without scribbling a face? I fill up a page with quick faces..

These are quick sketches - the whole page got filled in an hour or so, with the text and the err blue and green lines.. I don't know if the people are recognizable :) but most likely they'll never get to see this picture.

I just kept drawing.. I was tired at one point and you would know when, if you see the person whose face was being drawn at the time. But I kept going. And then I put in those blue and green lines everywhere.. Why? I don't really know! You know the feeling when you are incredibly sleepy or tired and still decide - I'll read just one more page - browse just one more minute - watch TV just 10 more mins - stitch just this one flower - it was like that! When I realized that, I stopped lest I spoil whatever I had drawn!

I went to sleep peacefully way after it was 1 am...
