“The arts are not a way of making a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Monday morning you looked so fine...
While there were no posts, there was a lot of drawing going on. I traveled to Hyderabad on work, and then immediately went on vacation. These drawings were done on the flight back and forth. What is of interest is the perspective mess up in my head when I look to draw. The airplane insides are full of challenges, curved walls, with intricate repetitive seats and other paraphernalia. And the airports, given regular delays, ensure my subjects stay in front for long periods while twisting and turning in their place.
