A fan since childhood. Posting old drawing(June 94) and a watercolor painting (13 March 1998). Tribute to Atalji.
This is an old illustrion done on the very day ‘Mr. Dependable’ Rahul Dravid and ‘Master Blaster’ Sachin Tendulkar scored not-out centuries 104* and 140* respectively against Kenya in the world cup match. You can see the date below my guitar signature, 23rd May 1999. Those days, I used to do this stylish signature resembling to guitar for fun. 🙂
On the top-right corner I jotted down Rahul’s praising words for Sachin. Few words are not readble in this picture so giving entire comment below.
We’re very good side, of course we’ve Sachin. How can I complain at receiving less attention when it is honor to share the same dressing-room. I’ve the respect of my peers and former players. There can only be one best player in the world and that is Sachin. His balance of mind, shrewd judgement, mobility and above all, his technical brilliance make him my all time hero. – Rahul Dravid
This was Sachin’s special inning against the backdrop of his father’s demise.

A new watercolor city-scape . Tried to capture work-in-progress for a new flyover bridge near Kakade City, Karvenagar. Actual work on this flyover started in 2012 and was supposed to be completed by the end of 2015. It is mid December 2017 and still it is in progress.:) There must be something mysterious about this bridge as it took me almost three weeks to finish this watercolor. 🙂 This is too much for any watercolor.
Though decided to blog regularly, it took a month to post new article. Sheer laziness!! 🙂 I have enough old work to post now as I have found old diary and drawings. So today here I’m presenting my favourite actor Akshaykumar.
These are done when Akshay was ‘Actionking’ and I was teenager fan of action movies. Interesting thing is that I was not in art school at that time, but was studying Industrial Electronics. These and few other drawings of Aishwarya led me to change the stream and study art. I was very much fan of them and used to draw them and stick those drawings on walls. After seeing these many friends/relatives advised me to go for ‘art side’. I will post those Aishwarya’s drawings any other day in separate post. For now, this is dedicated to Akki. Following is done almost 21 years back on November 29, 1996.
This is done on May 08, 1997. Look at my fondness towards calligraphy/typography, a stylish lettering ‘Actionking’. 🙂
And this is a week after.
I was such a crazy fan that I cut out Akshay’s famous action pose featured in ‘Khiladiyon ka Khiladi’ from newspaper and stuck it on wall clock’s second hand. Though I don’t have that clock now I can show the idea using following animation. Check this ‘Akshay in action’ and that too round the clock. 🙂
This would be a fun project for kids. They can use their favourite character like Chhota Bhim with ‘Gadā’. 🙂 and many similar ideas. 🙂
Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali.
