New play by Perch

Yesterday evening I dropped in for a rehearsal session of Perch's next play. Its early days yet and they haven't given the new production a name. When I walked in the actors were all sitting around in a circle and discussing the flow of scenes. They said they were planning to do their first run through in half an hour. Since I'm not too great with sketching human figures I thought that this was as good an oppurtunity as any to get all the actors sitting still for me so I started sketching right away.

Tranquebar trip

John and I recently realised that its been 14 months (!!) since we took a proper holiday and thats way too long for anyone. So one of the things we decided was to regularly try and do short weekend trips to places close to Madras that would interest us and offer us things to see. We're just back from a 3 day road trip to Tranquebar which is roughly 300km south of Madras.

Remembering the gorilla catcher

This is my first blog. I've been meaning to do this for a while, inspired by many artists and their online sketch journals. I live and work in Madras as an architect and I love to sketch what I see. So this blog is hopefully going to be my way of sharing with you some memorable experiences of mine through my sketches.
