Welcome to my ‘art’ page! If you’re visiting for the first time, please check out ‘Home‘ to read my written works and ‘Introduction‘ for a general overview.
Throughout my life, I’ve had an on and off relationship with drawing, sketching and crafts. I’m not good at any of those but sometimes, I manage to whip up reasonably presentable pieces of art. I don’t know how to draw from my imagination, so, I usually just draw everything from Pinterest or draw objects around me.

Christmas Cafe 2020
I basically painted a huge plastic lid black, then painted circular cardboard with acrylic hoping for a universe/space kind of theme, then I stuck numerical stickers and attached the cardboard to the lid. Then my parents helped me make a hole in the middle, where we attached the clock mechanism. I stuck some star stickers on the second hand, so now it looks like a shooting star is always in motion. And done!
Shown above is a collage of images of DIY book covers (10 covers, to be precise). The oldest one [second row, last(yellow) one] is 2 years old. They have all been done with acrylic paint and a piece of sponge. I also used pens for a few details.
A Walk Down Memory Lane
To start this artsy journey, here are a few of the very first pictures that I drew. I was probably 4 or 5 when I drew these. A huge thank you to my parents who preserved these ‘drawings‘. They remain the purest products of my toddler self’s imagination to this day. Had I seen these at 13 or 14, I would have disposed of them ruthlessly. Ah, the enormous proclivity towards stupidity my early teenage self possessed. Sometimes, I’m amazed by it myself. Oh well.
