This is an animated short that I did for boomer bubblegum blowing championship with some finishing touches by sunil TA. These are the chara I designed for the commercial. Neat eh?

The people who commissioned this work are a funny lot, they took my work, paid me well but have not yet aired it on TV. I'll upload the video by Dec end even if it is not there on TV by then.

My first big break in the world of comic strips. I am currently illustrating the comic strip "Bunty aur Bubbly" for
I did the chara design and so far things have been looking good, the strip has a good audience.

Bunty is the retro husband, also an idiot.

The initial bubbly design, she was rather Disney inspired.

The final bubbly design, she's all Indian.

Here's the link to the same:

vegetable prices

At IITB mess I never felt the impact of the spiralling vegetable prices. It was when aai returned and I went to the vegetable market with her that I found spinach was Rs20/- for a small bundle.
Normally aai pays happily to stuff me with it but now it seems that the price was too high.
