Desk essentials
These are my desk essentials other then the real tools and gadgets. Ginger chai with biscuit, a water bottle, my phone, Burt's Bees lip balm, Clinique body butter (used as hand cream) and flowers :). What are yours?

From my Sketchbook
Creative warm up or simply asking my mind to please keep quite for a bit? Let's not think for a while, if I need to be really impressive, original or unique. Just draw what I see in real life in front of me. Today its my favourite body butter that lives on my desk ;-) 

I am planing to do a bit of mindful sketching everyday by just spending 5 to 10 minutes to draw from 3 dimensional objects. I think this will help me clear my mind before I start working. I will try to post these drawings here on my blog everyday. Hope you will like them :-)

Football Cake
Personalised Football Invite
I've been incredibly super duper mega  busy last week. We celebrated our 7 year old son's birthday over the weekend.  As always I baked him a cake from scratch. Ok my cakes don't look perfect ;) but they do the job of making my little one extremely excited and I enjoy a ton decorating them and they are yummy too.  I also designed a personalised party invite for him. It was a fun and very sporty birthday party.  Birthday boy and his friends were happy :-)

These days I am working on books about Fire trucks and Recycle trucks. These are very interesting truck shaped books with lots of detailed artwork hidden behind sliders for children to explore. I love drawing vehicles with lots of details. I try to include the realistic technical stuff but make it look cute and colourful and sometimes a bit crafty too with the use of patterns and stitches. I can't share the illustrations from these books yet so I thought it would be nice to share this illustration I did in 2012 for my first book published in the US in early 2013 called Way Up High in the Big Blue Sky This book involved researching about planes, helicopters and spacecrafts. This book is packed full of all kinds of flying machines with realistic details drawn in a very child friendly way. If you have a little one who is interested in flying machines then this book would be a wonderful gift.
