Design All Around

Ive been spoiled thoroughly these past few days - being showered with gifts with valentines day and my birthday around the corner. So Im basking in the love and tirelessly admiring all my pretty new things. 
There is some beautiful design involved here - I thought I would show you around a little :)

A canopy (Ive always wanted one ) for my bed, 
turning it into fantasy sleep land with stars and fairy lights, dreamcatcher and lots of white linen ! and yes, also a man on the moon fishing for a star - you can see his shadow right on the top if you look carefully! 

beautiful pair of shoes sent for me by my sister - love everything about this pair!

Another dream come true - the incredible wacom intuos 5 made its way into my life two days ago - besides being an incredible tool, it is a gorgeous piece of design. I spend more time looking at it than using it!

It was love at first sight when I saw the Forrest Essentials packaging some months ago.
Another something that Ive always longed for. Not so much the product (though its great!) but more for that
gorgeous scented tissue with real rose petals and the beautiful bag and those gorgeous jars and bottles.

Finally - some plants for our new home. Its amazing how a little green life can alter a space so dramatically.
I plan to grow a whole little garden here, if my not- so- green thumb permits! 

Gotta love february! Ive never had such a torrent of beautiful goodies come my way in such quick succession  :) Have a great week! love.

Dance & Rise

Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. 
Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. 
Dance when you're perfectly free.

One billion rising is a movement, a revolution fighting violence against women - worldwide.
Their website is an incredible collective of talks, music, videos and dance recorded by some amazing talent from different countries. I was moved that they wrote me asking if I would create a poster to support this revolution and spread the message. 

Dance is holy,sexual and its a way of being very powerful and a little dangerous without being violent. 

All over the world, on the 14th of february- men and women will dance for their freedom.
In Bangalore, an event is being organized at cubbon park- join in if you can!

Forever Natural

A long time ago, I wrote about a diary I was working on for Hidesign. It turned out to be a piece that came very close to my heart, full of soul and much meaning. To me, it is very special. 

They kindly wrote a few lines about me and my art and my long connection with the brand in one of the introductory pages in the diary. 

My illustrations are about deep emotions and strong energies- Passion, Individuality, Sensuousness, Freedom, Love expressed through the various forces of nature - earth, wind, water, spirit. And the source of all that energy comes from the moon. The moon features in all the illustrations and all through the diary at various stages of its cycle. From a glowing full moon to no moon at all.

There are so many more illustrations to show you, but this is just a glimpse. I love the cover, a deep blue 
pebble leather. simple and gorgeous. If you have one of these - I hope you are enjoying writing in it!

Have a wonderful weekend. much love.
