After Apple Picking, freedom to run or play around

Did this illustration for kids tees. Back in my school days, one of my English teacher narrates our poems, or stories beautifully, that would normally make me sketch what I see through her. 

This is one such illustration inspired from a poem based on apple picking. My love for apple orchards, beautiful red ripe shiny apples, those rustic ladders, barrels...God it would be heaven to be in one such place.
Just Goggled for the poem and it is After Apple Picking by Robert Frost. This illustration is to Robert frost and my English teacher

Pumps has always been in fashion, be it summer, or winter, be it you wanna look fun, formal, casual, or sophisticated. Pumps will always be there to work the magic for you.

Plenty of option's there in the market nowadays, pairing it up with the right outfit is where the trick involves. Pointed toes to give that sexy look, peep toes for summer,  or platform pumps for frocks, so does pumps with bows, nude pumps anywhere. Heels depending on your comfort :)

How will it be to have a Life as Animation

Around two weeks back I tweeted, “feel so complete watchin cartoons... I wish what i see around me is cartoon too...

It has been an urge to watch lots of animation movies and think of doing something animation too.

I have always been very happy and loved every moment of my career in fashion and designing.

But recently I got so much interested and involved in animation that I guess, I should also start animation along with fashion designing. May be because of the Inspirations I get from Hayao Miyazaki, Tim burton, and so many other cartoonists and manga artists. And my brother is responsible for this, by keep on supplying me with awesome animation movies :)

One day I wish to go on internship with Hayao miyazaki.

How'ls moving castle

It is been travelling time for me for the past 6 months, been travelling quiet frequently to certain places, and was happened to explore lot of stuff on the way and on the cities I visited, especially happened to visit some very vintage temples near trichy, they were just breath taking, the way they have build it with so much of art, sculptures, it was very helpful for my design works that I got so much of inspirations.

One such thing I noticed which was something really unusual on my way to trichy was the howls moving castle, oh this is what I felt like when I saw it, but it was an awesome cement factory and I was so excited to watch one of my favorite characters, howl's moving castle in reality.

I am not sure whether any other lovers of howls moving castle could relate it, so thought will share it here.

My city outskirts has always been full of industries, they are so interesting to watch, huge unusual shapes, all rusted up walls and chimneys. I have always fascinated to watch them, really wanted to use them in my works some day.

And, here is the castle, :)

Here is a look at the original Hayao miyazaki's Howls moving castle,
