A racoon and a donkey (post 17)

Many people who read my books are unaware that I also make art. I have been doing this since my childhood, and it is one thing that gives me immense joy, apart from my writing.

An art course that I did a while back, had a very interesting exercise. We had to get realistic looking  plastic animals, use them as models and then make realistic animal sketches.
Today I took out my collection of animals, and here's what i made.


A brown raccon




And a donkey.

And here they are, now a part of my sketchbook!

  1. It's inspiring and amusing to see how you take breaks from doing your regular work (writing), which is art by itself, and breathe life into these other forms of art and rejuvenate yourself in the process. No wonder you are able to get so much out of 24 hours in a day :).

    Your sketches look superior than the models.

  6. Very Nice. I had done art work only in my 12th std biology class and for my btech graphics class. I did enjoy them but never carried this interest forward. Your work is very inspiring. Brown Racoon looks lovely
