I also work with ceramics and play guitalele, write, sing & compose music in a Delhi based band called Station I K I G A I.

Exploring the North East
The sketch for this was made in a jeep while driving up to Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh from Guwahati, Assam for a music festival. Nobody could quite say how long the drive would take. Everybody we asked had a different answer. My friend and I braced for a 7 hour drive but it ended up being close to 12 hours and to top that off we had a drunk driver who kept taking "breaks"! After getting the taxi driver out of one of his various drinking stops and banning his breaks (only in India) - to calm down, I started to sketch the magnificent tropical forest and all the signage BRO ( Border Roads Organisation :)) had put through the endless mesmerising forest. A rare long drive where you see the jungle and barely any human settlements.
