Old sketchbook page:
I am a highly active journaller. Throughout every day of my life I fill pages of text and drawings, collecting my thoughts, realizations, learnings, musings, logs, inspirations and concepts. Here I share with you some samples from various volumes of the manuscripts.
The current volume becomes my closest companion. As the pages fill, I rarely find relevance in anything more than the most recent 2-3 pages. I seldom look back on previous journal, but do keep them as an archive for the future. I happily experiment with the practice, trying different exercises and designs. Mostly these pages are uninhibited and filled without much though of the outcome-precisely what makes it so precious. I did go a week consciously avoiding my journal... I survived.
Currently I am working on publishing a journal that culminated from my travels in India.

The primary constituent of our world is water. The primary constituent of our body is water. All water is recycled via the hydrological cycle (the sky uptakes and recycles it back to us). It is said that only 7% of earth’s waters have been seen by human eyes.

A Mind of Water (2013)
Pencil, Ink, neocolor pastel, acrylic and beet juice on paper.
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
