I doodle all the time and a couple of years ago,I randomly decided to scan my doodles and play with them on Ai to see what I could come up with.I was pretty happy with the results.Have a look and tell me what you think :
Back in high school,some of my gfs and me were dubbed as ‘The bad girl gang’ by the popular girls at school.At that time we took it as a compliment,but now,the whole thing just seems so funny!High school kids are clowns!
This one is my favorite of the lot!
One my closest friends is from the North-Eastern state of Meghalaya.It’s a beautiful state with lovely people but do have a bit of a problem with the national language.This was a light hearted dig at my friend’s irritation,she loved it too!
Here are the rest :
And this last one is sort of like Fan-art for Bryan Boy.I am not actually a Bryan boy fan but I do love his personality and his witty,original lines!
Please have a look and if you like then do share and comment.I would love to hear from you!

Sean Rocha : The Inhabited Space
The Hermes store at Horniman circle, Mumbai recently saw the conclusion of an exhibition of photographs by American photographer Sean Rocha.Presented by Jhaveri Contemporary, The Inhabited Space was conceived as part of the FOCUS Mumbai photography festival.
I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the closing of the show and meet the photographer.
“Conventionally, a Western photographer might regards London or Paris as culturally near and Mumbai or Phnom Penh as distant, but these photographs and the projection take all the urban spaces on precisely equal cultural and aesthetic terms” says Rocha.”What I am trying to do, in a sense,is invert and modernize the parochialism depicted in the New Yorker magazine cover from 29th March 1976 by Saul Steinberg(See below),which depicts the parochial New York view of the regions of consequence (and thus, by their absence, also inconsequence) looking west from the city.”
Thus The Inhabited Space,while keeping with the theme of the festival ‘the city’ explores various cities but leaves the chaos and human density behind and instead captures moments of solitude and tranquility. Rocha has been working on this series for the last 8 years and his work has taken him to cities across the world. Consisting of twelve large photographs and a projection of images, the exhibition is a visual treat. Still images of photography juxtaposed with moving images of flm, the images in the projection spanning from dawn to dusk, dissolve in a delightful slow-motion time lapse portray a 24-hour period in the life of a city : People rising in the morning, going to work, going about their day, returning home, turning off lights and going to bed.
In his attempt to accurately present what Rocha calls a ‘geographically equidistant’ perspective of the world, the unification of the two, above mentioned elements displays his interest in the way that urban spaces and inhabited.
