Image from ‘The Lion’s Feast’, a book I wrote and illustrated. Forthcoming from Karadi Tales.
It’s time for CROCUS again – the annual week long celebration of books and the people that make them, over at Saffron Tree.
The theme this year – Migration. Do drop by for their terrific reviews, contests, and interviews.
I had a blast – okay, and some nerve wracking moments – designing that logo.
If you’ve been following the IPL, or rather, the media caterwauling over it, you couldn’t have missed the sad, sorry saga of SRK and his banishment from Wankhede for the hissy fit he had there last year. And of course he probably thought all would be forgiven and forgotten. Yes, well – ha!
Spent the last week in glorious Madhya Pradesh, shooting tigers .. with a camera, that is. There is no such thing as seeing too many tigers. And there is nothing to beat the feeling of watching a tigress saunter across the road, fifteen feet from your ramshackle Maruti Gypsy, while you quiver in silent, disbelieving joy, tear up in the most embarrassing way and utterly forget how to use that darned camera.
This comic strip I drew a while ago, called ‘Woohoo, Jazz Hands Everyone!‘ was featured over at Ultraviolet‘s website today.
UV is a terrific website focusing on feminist issues in India that I’ve been following for years. It’s also a website I’ve wished to contribute to for all of those years, so this is a tremendous honour. The kind that calls for a series of Julie Andrews-style high kicks all through the house.
Yes, jazz hands too.
