Cakes and Ale

The first book I read of W. Somerset Maugham was 'The Razor's edge'. I read 'Theatre' afterwards and after a good two years, I picked another of his book 'Cakes and Ale'. I noticed how Maugham has thrown a punch on the pretentious glass walls throughout in his writing. His writing style eases down beautifully in the reader's eye and his analogies fit the situations like a soft wooden door. Today morning, I was reading a few pages from 'Cakes and Ale' and on page number 157, a line struck me with its simple truth. This book deals with the diplomatic nuisance coming in play when draping an author's life with ornaments that he never aspired for. It has been a good read so far.

Bangalore Khidki

Haven't been sketching for some time. So, this Sunday morning, just sat and drew this. The buildings keep different colours on its walls and change flavours to the sunlight. There are lot of dish tv satellites up on the roof these days. I am going home soon for quite sometime. Hopefully, will have some sketches from Patna soon.

Asterios Polyp

I finished reading this graphic novel called 'Asterios Polyp' by American artist David Mazzucchelli. It has a queer colour palette and you won't find a single page with the use of black ink. This book is about a paper architect and him making a treehouse for a kid (this is just one of the small aspect of the book). The story has been narrated well with clever use of drawing and line quality that depicts the perception of the characters.
This is just one of the page from the book. It holds a lot of meaning. Thats why, I am sharing this with you.
