  • ~ Ink on Paper ~
I've been told that it is an image that stays with people and I'm glad I could achieve that. All in all, it was a great learning experience. I love the idea, the very simplicity of it.
This artwork was drawn as a cover for the reissue of M. J. Akbar's best-seller title, "India - The Siege Within, Challenges To A Nation's Unity". The artwork was inspired by the title and by extension the subject of the book. It was drawn over a course of 15 days and took me about 72 hours to complete. The drawing was made on an A3 sheet and then scanned and colour corrected. 
This was drawn using pen and ink on paper. I used pen and ink, a Rotring Isograph 0.2 mm and 0.1 mm pen, Speedball dip pen with D. Leonardt & Co nibs and India ink.

  • Ma Kaalratri is worshiped on the 7th day of Navratri. Kaal means time or death while Ratri refers to night or ignorance. Hence, Ma Kaalratri brings the death of darkness or the one who ends ignorance. She is also called Kali.

Ma Kaalratri is a highly terrorizing form of Durga. Her complexion is dark as night and she has thick open hair. She has 4 hands and carries a scimitar and a thunder bolt in 2 hands. The other 2 are held in the form of ‘giving’ and ‘protecting’. She has 3 eyes and fire comes out of her nostrils when she breathes. Her necklace shines like the Moon. Her mount is a donkey. She is also called Shubhankari the bringer of auspicious results to her devotees.

Once 2 demons, Shumbha and Nishumbha, invaded Devaloka and defeated Indra and his army. After losing his Swarga, Indra and other gods went to the Himalayas for help. They prayed to Parvati, who created Chandi and sent her to kill the demons. Shumbha and Nishumbha sent Chanda and Munda to fight Chandi. Chandi created her goddess, Kali, to fight Chanda-Munda. Kali killed both of them and thus was known as Chamunda.

Another demon, Raktabeej, was sent to kill Kali. Raktabeej had a boon from Brahma, that as soon as a drop of his blood would fall on the ground, his twin would be created.

Ma Kaalratri saw this and started drinking the blood of each twin of Raktabeej that she attacked.

Chandi killed Shumbha – Nishumbha and gave Swarga back to Indra.

  • ~ Collage ~
Holi was just around the corner and everyone (including me) was pretty excited. The colours, the liveliness, the parties but just because we understand the concept of Holi and how it's celebrated doesn't mean that everyone else does too. And the worst thing is when animals are subjected to the 'celebrations' inflicted by us. So, this year, please think twice before getting too involved in your celebrations and harming animals that are definitely already terrified of this festival. 
So, I used 2 pictures from my art forming a collage, a water splash forming into a dog. Its all about the idea of how we put it. Its a simple thought using 2 pictures. 
I think more on social aspects. Being an artist myself, I think if I have skills, my skills should work as a messenger for people.
Tools used here are Photoshop and Illustrator.

  • Music and Mark making 🎶: Sometimes the most peaceful way for me to silence, zone out and switch off all the stress and unnecessary chatter within and around me, is to plug in my earphones, find a quiet spot and pick up a paintbrush without intention or care as to what I'm creating-  Simply freeing and allowing my  brush to glide, dribble and fall it's way across the page as it pleases.

Making art that responds to music elicits mindfulness and softly stimulates our sensory awareness, allowing us to express instinctively and emotionally to a given and contained moment.
In these exercises, Bhavani explores movement and mark making, responding in colour and flow to different music/songs that trigger mixed and varying emotions and moods within her. .
We ended the session with creating a Mandala, to return and restore feelings of centering and balance in response to music she felt eased, relaxed and calmed her.
