So this is my artist's avatar, a Werecactus. Stress can turn you into a prickly monster, but just chill, meditate and keep drawing.

The Wedding Guest

  THE WEDDING GUEST by Anamika Baruah
Trying to eat messy food while dressed in your best is a tricky skill and some people are pros at it.

As for me, as a kid, I wore jeans with elastic bands so I could station myself by the buffet and eat away until my embarrassed mother would try and pull me away whispering furiously "Stop that! people will think I don't feed you anything!" That should be an embarrassing memory but have you eaten food at Assamese and Bengali weddings???That shiz is delicious. I regret nothing!

The Rook Fanart

" Dear You, the body you are wearing used to be mine" - The Rook, Daniel O'Malley.
I really enjoyed reading The Rook, last year, after it hooked me with that first line. It's a fantasy/supernatural action thriller with a healthy dose of wit, suspense and superpowers. It's the X Men meets MI-6. Myfanwy Thomas is one of my favourite protagonists, the kind you wish was your friend.
Here's fan art for it. I've been meaning to draw this ever since I finished the book but just never got down to doing it. #fanartfriday

Done on March 2, 2019, posting now coz I forgot I have a blog :D

Old unposted animatics for a kid's show.

I have been trying to seriously get into storyboarding and so was going through some stuff I'd done some time ago.I realized I'd never put these up here. This is a sample of the animatics I'd done while working at Studio Eeksaurus in  Mumbai for a kids show on Nick India. This was fun to do.

Calm before the storm

 Here's a photoshop doodle... of Bordoisila, the wayward wind, resting before gathering up into a storm. I know it is the wrong season for it, since Bordoisila hits Assam and its neighbouring areas around early spring, but my brain fixed on this now. So, there .
