Cartoon, Valentine & Books

  • Creating my cartoon characters
  • Canvas painting for my husband

These are couple of things I’d been working on for the past couple of days.



For now, I’m naming them Jane & Frank.

I will be creating their co-existing characters like Mikey, Jamie etc etc. I should be done by this week end.

I also made a canvas painting for my husband for Valentine’s day.

Canvas for my husband
It didn’t turn out the way I expected. First of all, it’s a bad choice of colors. I wish I had chosen something different for the background. Second of all, I am not proud of the border either. Thirdly, the Ballet dancer looks screwed up , among other things. I did learn a few things, though which I hope to implement in my next project.

While looking for cartoons, I stumbled upon something interesting: A guide to Ruby with cartoon. Seeing my husband read Ruby, I’ve been wondering what it is about. This guide is pretty interesting, especially for a not-so-IT person like me.

I started reading A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth. It is good so far. I’m sure I’ll be reading this book for at least a whole month – Considering the fact that I’m an incredibly slow reader & the book has 1500 pages or so.

I’ve been trying to paint something for the past two weeks. I guess my imagination is on sabbatical. Two months back I did a painting for my friend Anita. It was glass painting. After I completed that, I wanted to try drawings & canvas paintings.

I tried drawing Ganesha. It looked good. But I wanted to create something of my own. Then I tried to create something with 5+3 = 8 with man & woman on either side of the numbers, but I didn’t get through that. It is still in the diaper stage. I’ll probably look into it this week end & try to do something.

Today I copied a sketch from a ballet book I got from the library.

(Tidbit: I’ve been learning Ballet now for about 3 weeks & I’m having the time of my life. I’ve never felt happier as I do every time I dance. I’m also learning Flamenco. Oh, what a dance. I’m falling in love.)

I also tried sketching my husband. It didn’t come out very well, either.

Then I drew my friend in high school.

Well, I thought I could say that to people, but the fact is, I tried to draw myself & it turned out so bad, my husband warned me not to dare telling anybody.

Anyway, for those who know me, I’m very sorry that I’m a bad artist. I WILL keep trying though.
