To move
Needing to be
Nowhere else.
Wanting nothing
From any store.
To lift something
You already had
And set it down in
A new place.
Awakened eye
Seeing freshly.
What does that do to
The old blood moving through
Its channels? 

Around a Table

This illustration for a story will probably appear in print only next year so I thought I'd show a section of this on my blog. the picture below is part of the preparatory drawing.

Three Years Ago

Social media tells me that this was the world I was living in at this date three years ago.I look back and wonder how I did it all.
There, in Nov 2014, I stuffed my face with Maple butter croissant to mitigate my immigrant angst. Here, in Nov 2017, I am walking through warm dappled sunlight and eating freshly cut cucumber and pineapple sprinkled with salt and chilli good.

Morning Meditation

The swirls of red silk sari in the picture echo with the molten rich vanilla scented dulce de leche in the jar.

Another Cover

There is one art director who absolutely knows what to do with the styles of different illustrators. She brings out the best in each of us. This cover was particularly challenging since we were figuring things out as I went along with her suggestions. I wasn't quite sure what she wanted or had in mind and after many attempts at getting it right I wasn't even sure if what I had done had sufficed. I spent sleepless nights.Then when the cover design with my illustration arrived in my inbox, I was pleased by how striking it was. It is therefore with great pleasure that I am showing it off over here.

In Iceland

I received this charming email from Iceland thanking me upon receiving the prints. 

Halló Priya,
the prints just arrived, thank you so much! Such a nice surprise! They are just wonderful. Our humble rural postman was very impressed by the number of stamps, he never delivered anything coming from that far away 
Thank you again and all the best,
