Since childhood I have been interested in drawing. But years 1996 and 1997 saw a surge in something interesting – I started making sketches of people around me. I just needed some inspiration, a piece of paper and a pen…and here it went. Some of the sketches were made during my train journeys. You would notice that some sketches were made even on the pieces of rough paper…such was the interest. Even though the surge is gone I continue to doodle and, in recent years, have designed the logos for a few organisations and websites.
MY NANAJI (MATERNAL GRANDFATHER) ACKNOWLEDGED THE SKETCH WITH HIS SIGNATURES
NANIJI (MATERNAL GRANDMOTHER) ALSO ACKNOWLEDGED HER SKETCH
