Illustrations for books

I don't know exactly when I became aware of my natural inclination to illustrate books. Pehaps I live in the wrong century as book illustrations will hardly put some bread on the table. The " Golden era of illustration" is long gone. Fortunately, higher powers have given me a golden opportunity to practice my passion without worries.

Kaykeyi"s Sorrow watercolor and ink.
This is an illustration from me and my daughter's book "Prince Rama" . It is part of the second book and it is yet to be published.

Tataka, the Hideous Monster

This painting is a favorite of mine. Perhaps it reflects a side of myself I don't show very often (or rather try to hide).
