Indian Adventures & Sketch Book Tales


Here are a collection of illustrations that I created during my visit to India. I was fortunate to visit the region of Kashmir then made my way to the holy city of Varanasi then finally ending up in Rishikesh the home of the Ganges and the spiritual birth place of the Beatles.

Indian Sketching Adventures Where Hindu God meets Buddha

These two illustrations were developed during my month long adventure in india. I enjoyed learning about all the wonderful hindu gods and their tales to greatness. 


The first illustration was inspired by buddha which I illustrated in a town called Mcleod Ganj which is best known home of the Dalai Lama. The illustration has a slight twisted of magic as the buddha transcends its mediation powers to far away planet of aliens riding on the sun. 
Another Universe


  The second illustration hanuman the healing monkey, I was taken away by the charms of Hanuman the monkey god which I relentlessly illustrated in the wonderful and spiritual town of Rishikesh. This town is best known by the Beatles, where they stayed and learnt about the well being practice of yoga, mediation and the art Sitar playing.
