'Drawing attention'

I had the wonderful opportunity to spend the last week in 
the company of 17 lovely ladies , at a workshop on 
comics called 'drawing attention' organised by the 

I took the workshop with the incredibly talented Larissa Bertonasco
and Ludmilla Bartscht . It was so inspiring to see their work for Spring magazine,
a yearly anthology of comics created by a team of women who live in different
parts of Germany and Switzerland.

Ludmilla

The workshop would have been nothing without the
wonderful, spunky,witty, sometimes crazy participants who 
came up with such a wide range of very unique stories.  
I came back feeling I had learnt so much more about the 
language of comics just by interacting with them.

Dolce far Niente

Delhi is beautiful this time of the year and I happened to go to Nehru park this Monday with friends - Yes, on a Monday . Lying in the grass, my thoughts went to this beautiful poem 'I dream of a quiet man' by Wendell Berry. It also reminded me of the phrase 'Dolce far Niente' ; Italian for  'the sweetness of doing nothing'. It was just what the doctor ordered that day.

rewards!

I was flipping through 'chakmak' a monthly hindi language
magazine for children yesterday , and I spotted this really cute
drawing of Kamalnayan the camel  from 'I'm so sleepy' drawn by a little
girl in Sirohi (Rajasthan) .  This left me grinning from ear to ear.

Then, a few hours after , the very talented
2 year old molicool sent me this image of a drawing from
'Rooster Raga'.These are the big rewards that make
the job worth it :)
