This weekend was a throwback to a phrase I haven't heard in years: Latram Patram. Its Punjabi for "nonsense, useless, etc., misc.(!)" My attachment to this word makes little sense to me. However, something of its nostalgia has inspired me to throw down some lines and shapes. Something about it also satisfies my search for lost words in my childhood vocabulary--words that fall out of use as identities undergo transformation.
Stay tuned for other Non Sense to follow.

T-shirts are SO yesterday so why not get your kurta on? I am selling the fabulous FabIndia kurta shown above with hand-sewn detailing (by me). It's 100% cotton and can be rocked with jeans, tights or low rider patialas! $65. Size small.
Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comment area below if you're interested in buying. Remember it's one-of-a-kind and won't last long!

What more can I say? CHOOSE LIFE. I saw this statement on someone's t-shirt recently. Bold and to the point. The drawing in which the diagonals are talking to the triangles are dedicated to that statement and the beautiful soul who was wearing it.
Oh and in case there is any doubt, CHOOSE LIFE is not an anti-abortion statement. I fully support a woman's right to choose. CHOOSE LIFE is about making a choice to be all the best you can. As Sizzla says:
"Yes,you got to be strong / And be all the best you can / The world is out there, conquer your fears / And don't you wait too long..."
Be strong (and vulnerable).

To draw and colour in geometric shapes is intensely satisfying. It feels meditative, like being lost in the paper and ink, not consciously thinking about anything. Now and again, I come back to figurative reality and draw the occasional flower : )
