The Coup Card

Ever since I started working with chalk, people have been approaching me to create illustrations and do lettering in that medium.
And I couldn't complain because it really is fun.

Brown Paper Bag was relaunching the Coup Card which is their culinary loyalty program. On purchasing this card one can avail discounts at Mumbai's best bars and restaurants. It's pretty cool. Totally worth it. Not sure why I don't have one yet actually.

Now the Coup Card website has a whole chalk art look going on.
And so Bpb asked me if I'd do some chalk art video for them.
But not with chalk.
So I created digital illustrations for them that just looked like chalk.
And with it 3 fun videos were created.

Here's how it turned out.

Illustrations by me.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

I finally finally finally watched The Grand Budapest Hotel today.
Somehow everyone I know had watched it on a flight.
And I was contemplating whether or not to travel soon just to watch this movie.
Since I was too lazy to be a pirate.

Like all other Wes Anderson movies, I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

From the colours.

To the strange but loveable characters.

To the cute little love story.

And Wes Anderson's love for centering all his shots.

Ticket Gods, this post is for you

I have read a handful of books in my life.
Mostly because I get bored after 50 pages and start watching tv.
But 10 years ago I read this book called The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.
And I think it will always be my favourite.

Now I don't even remember the story so well.
So I had planned on reading it again.
But then I heard there's a show today at the NCPA.
It's actually a screening of the play.
And I have no tickets.

If my good karma still means something, a flying unicorn will come and deliver my tickets by this evening.

Come on karma. Work your magic.

The End

I received a book in the mail today.
At first I thought flipkart made a mistake that I was planning on ignoring.
But then I realised that I have kind friends who like to send me stuff in the mail.
Just because.

I haven't started reading it yet.
As always I flipped over to the last page first.
And it made me smile.

Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.

Remember when I woke up one day and decided to draw on the wall in my room?
Well, it wasn't that long ago.
If you don't remember, I have a video to prove it.

Well, that was just practice.
Now people hire me to draw on their walls.
How cool is that?

And sometimes people refer to me as a chalk artist.
Or that girl who does chalk art.
I find it funny because chalk is just a medium.
I could scribble on your wall with just about anything.
Not a problem.

Terttulia, a popular restaurant in Pune, opens in Bombay today.
But the food isn't the only thing that I'm excited about.
It's also the art on the walls of the restaurant.
Because I was responsible for it.

I've done a mix of illustration and hand lettering and it was a lot of fun.
It was a lot of work for one person so I worked on it with the wonderful Rabanne (he makes furniture too) who was just the best guy to hang out with - while working, traveling, lunching and dinnering (my English isn't bad. I just have a talent for making up words).

Here are a few photos of the restaurant:

You can see more photos on my website. And then some more.

I've eaten a bunch of things there but highly recommend the mud cake.
It makes you forget all the troubles of this world and temporarily makes you feel as happy as a new born baby.

If you plan on going there, here's the address:
Ground Floor, Hotel Parkway,
Near Natural Ice Cream,
Shivaji Park, Mumbai

Daily musings


If you frame your window like a painting,

would you look at the world as art?
