Shades of Black on White

We promised to come back with more sketches from Ashwini. After a series of cartoon sketches of politicians, Ashwini is back with a series of the shades of Black on white. While the earlier series had brought a smile, this one brings in an amazement on how much life is there in what in just black and white...what wonders can a pencil and paper do.

This collection is a close-up of faces and the facial lines are so neatly done that the sketches look real life. This time however, I would not have a teaser sketch here...the whole collection is for you to admire on "Majhe Chand". Do post in your views and comments, so that Ashwini has her feedback and some more up-coming artists come-up with their collections.

We have a huge artist pool with us and the contributions have started flowing in. Keep watching the blog for more posts. Well, do you want to just keep watching and not get listed in the talent club?? Send in your talents to and we will tell you what it means to us.

A New Year...same old fun!

The New Year for us begins greeting each other "Happy New Year" and continues onto a wishing a series of birthdays! We have three birthdays in the first week of January, starting with Prajakta on Jan 01, Yashashree on Jan 02, Trupti on Jan 03 and Vivek & Rahul on Jan 04.

The first meet of 2008 saw 9 faces...Kedar, Mangesh, Sagar, Prajakta, Rahul, Rohan, Vaidehi, Aditi and Ashutosh. Kedar and Mangesh were upto their usual jokes to keep the mood light, Aditi and Prajakta was all laughs while Vaidehi kept messing up with her language, Rahul and Rohan who had joined in recently were more over silent observers and Ashutosh had all excused for his late entry. The get-together was as planned at Udyan Ganesh Mandir, Shivaji Park. However as the 'Mamta din' celebrations were going on, we decided not to disturb the celebrations and moved to a quiter place at Oven Fresh. Prajakta treated us with her birthday cake, so the celebrations continue...

Yashashree, Trupti and Vivek who had their birthdays and were not able to make it to this meet, have promised to give a treat in the next meet. Vivek would also be giving an additional treat for his marriage with Prachi (the marriage was quite a surprize though!) Talking about marriages, Uma too has lined up. Mangesh mentioned that she is already engaged! Well, Uma, we are waiting to hear from you!

In all, the New Year has started with new excitements and the same old fun. There are many treats, cakes and parties to come. So those of you, who feel you would be missing any of the meets...think again!
