I realized a while ago that I haven’t uploaded any of my artworks after 2015. So here’s a portrait I made yesterday of Katherine Langford. She’s the lead actress from the American web television series ’13 Reasons Why’. I haven’t really seen the entire series yet, only some 6-7 episodes, but I feel that for a newcomer she has done a flawless job of portraying the Hannah Baker as depicted in the Thirteen Reasons Why book by Jay Asher (Oh yes, I’ve read the book!).
Paper: I drew it in an A6 sized Sketch book of 130 gsm.
Pens: Pigma Micron 0.20 mm line width and Pigma Micron 0.25 mm line width
P.S.: I may upload more of my artworks on my blog in the next few days, so keep visiting!
Sitting quietly by the windowsill, I was watching the colony of tiny ants, patiently carrying cubes of sugar, lining up in a queue and walking slow but steady. My eyes follow their path down from the windowsill through the curvy pipes and then straight into the grass. The grass is fresh but in need of water. I went inside to grab a jug of water. As I was pouring water into the potted plants, I broke a sweat. I had hardly done any work! Yet the heat of summers along with the humidity in Mumbai is enough to be soaked in sweat within minutes.
I was longing for the rain. We all do it, right? Towards the end of summers, when the degrees soar up insanely, we all know who to wait for. Especially in Mumbai, where winters are dull and summers are hot, our only saviour is the rain. That’s the one thing which we have in abundance!
It’s quiet tonight. Rains have already arrived in the southern parts of India, slowing traversing it’s way upwards. The thought of rain excites me. Of course, I’m not fond of the thunder which follows the rain.
Our relatives from countryside have already notified us about the arrival of rain at their place. It’s so close now. I can totally feel it. It was breezy some time ago but now it’s even more windy. And it’s considerably cooler now. Signs of rain. It’s night time, so I cannot actually see the clouds clearly, but I’m sure it’s cloudy as no star is visible.
I hope it rains tonight. I hope it lowers the temperature.
Sometimes, a blank page is all you see. You hold a pen in your hand, thinking about things to say, things to write, things to do; but nothing clicks. Or maybe it does click at times, but your hand doesn’t consider it worthy enough to let the thought flow in the form of ink through your pen.
You have in your hand scores of pressing issues to be solved as soon as possible, personal issues, issues requiring only your personal opinion. Yet, you somehow manage to find silly excuses to postpone it, you rely on other so-called important tasks at hand, to ignore the really important issues.
But procrastination isn’t the solution. Sooner or later, we have to face it, we need to face it, before it’s too late to act upon. But when? But how?
