Don't Follow Your Passion




PASSION! We have been creating such a big hype around it. Follow your passion and success will follow, etc. Yesterday, I came across this video while actually looking for something else (and I'd like to believe this was an example of what she's talking about). It was such an eye-opener. Elizabeth Gilbert talks about passion (like many other motivational speakers) but this time it's a different point of view. She talks about how we need to stop making a HUGE F*CKING deal about following our "PASSION". She talks about how people who haven't found the P word (who are already halfway through life) are beating themselves over not having found it, getting severely affected by anxiety that's caused by the lack of the P word in their life. So, instead she asks us to not be intimidated by this P word and rather just keep following our CURIOSITY (or gut, intuition, etc.). and passion will follow.. Just do what your heart or curiosity makes you do or go where it takes you and you'll find what you're supposed to find.. And I like this new way of looking at life and the purpose of being where we are. I hope you watch the video or just listen to it in the background like a podcast while working. And I hope you share it with people who you think need to know that it's ok to have not figured what they want or what their "true purpose" is, and also share it with those who have found their passion and are making a big deal about it. Aka, just share it with all mankind.

How I see Monsoon.. It's a series, because

Sneak Peek

A few moments in my life. Honestly, just an amateur attempt at filming. Let's see how far this goes. I had fun though! Maybe I could be a Youtuber/Vlogger too. I love watching Vlogs from other YouTubers, so I thought I'll take a stab at it.
Well, the following is what happened..

Familia

Just an illustration project that didn't work out, so it's here, just chilling, eating and getting fat (geddit? didn't 'work out'). I amuse myself sometimes. :D
Make what you will of it.

Drat!

So, recently my MacBook crashed and it felt like my life has ended. Well, clearly I needed to calm the f**k down, but the brain thinks what the brain thinks. But good news, it's all sorted, MacBook is fixed, life's good again. YAY! I can breathe again. :P

Good Life Recipe

Sharing my good life with you guys. Although there were some football matches that made me want to pull a big chunk of my hair this weekend. But I quickly got over it (make believing) with Cheesecake. Better pull out a big fork and indulge than have a bald spot, no? Thanks to Indigo Deli, Mumbai and my ever so adorable kid brother. :) Yay!

Some Mo!

Don't quite remember which city we were flying to, but it was somewhere within Turkey.

Update #5

Slow and steady is the mantra for my book project. Because, I don't want to complete it in a hurry just because I HAVE to get done with it. I just can't be that way. Like I mentioned in the previous post, I'm going to edit a few illustrations I did initially because I don't want to half-ass it. And besides, every project or venture you're working on, is like your child. Now would you let your baby go to school without his/her water bottle? NO. If you do forget, you find a way to provide them with a water bottle because you don't want them to be thirsty. You want to provide them with utmost care and attention and love that you could possibly give. Similarly, this project needs attention to details. Hence the decision to revisit the old illustrations. So yes, Project completion: 65%.

Anyway, I have another sneak peek!  Although, the illustration is not used in the same context in the book as I've shown below, but here it means that the ladder to your dreams will have obstacles and constraints but you've just gotta keep persevering! Never let the obstacles be the reason for you to stop climbing up the ladder, or to fall off and never get back up. So, there! A few words of motivation from me to me and you, if you need them for some reason! Happy climbing, lovely souls! :)

Fierce Femme


This inspired the below illustration.


This illustration was not illustrated digitally.
I painted it with markers and pencil colors and later
scanned it for refining.

Gym Uncles



Yes, I go to the gym and observe what all the uncles are doing. Wait here, while I get myself tested. On a serious note though, I don't mean to offend any kind of uncles. In fact I think it's pretty cool that The Uncles these days are into fitness, I mean I'm here struggling to get out of bed in the morning, and LOOK AT THEM COOL DUDES, except pervy uncle, you must stop. Also, the fifth type is my fave uncle. Do you see these uncles at your gym? Or am I the special one *insert sarcy emoji here*..?

Update #4

Coffee/Tea to drink, books to read, calligraphy to practice, such reasons to be happy!
Also, update on the book project- completion level: 70% .. but there are going to be a few edits in the initial pages, because some of it makes me cringe now. You know that feeling when you wrote/painted/posted something a long time ago and you've changed/grown so much since then that it now makes you want to cringe? That. So some of the initial pages might need changes to be in sync with the current style. So, I might pull the completion level from 70% to 60% again. Let's see. Anyway, "drink and be merry", lovely souls! :)
