December is here..

Hello lovelies,

I cannot believe the  year is almost drawing to an end. Its the beginning of December.  In our household, it means, I just got done with both my kids’ birthday parties. Majority of the birthdays in our family begin in October. My sisters, my husband, father- in-law, my niece , my son , my brother-in-law and my daughter. Lots of birthdays, phew !

December begins with my daughter’s birthday , there’s holiday parties, Christmas , my own birthday and of course the year ends – in that order .

There’s lots of illustrations to be done , in all of this, of course.

I’ve been busy with a few commissioned pieces, which I love. If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram, you’ll see the stuff I’ve been playing with.

It’s hard to pick , but here are some of my favorite pieces.

I came across this gorgeous dress designed by Suneet Varma, an Indian designer. The red just caught my eye . Give him some love. Really one to watch .

This particular piece was regrammed by the designer. yay.. to me its a recognition that the designer appreciates the way I interpret his vision in my own way. I also feel very connected to the designer and his/her vision.

Who doesn’t like shoes and heels ? Pair them up with some frayed hem jeans as reported by The Zoe Project – you’ll be on point.

Heels and frayed jeans = awesome 

 

I love illustrating movement , as is obvious in many of my sketches – be it fashion , street style , dance and sport . Its all about conveying that energy in an artistic way. I am inspired by the photographs taken by the nycdanceproject . If you haven’t checked them out, you should. Here’s a sketch inspired by their picture from last Monday.

I also want to highlight the fashion happening in Australia . I am an Indian-born Australian living in the U.S. I tend to stay connected to all these parts of me through illustrating them . Keeps me inspired and hopefully , I bring to you content that is fresh and new.

This one just felt like she was floating – poetry in motion. One of those pictures that you feel just has to be illustrated !

Cheers,
