Snow-Fall at HBS: Leaf Art Part 3

161215-snow-at-hbs-on-leaf

A leaf might fall, but it can still add life. It may snow outside, but life can still have colour. Basically just an excuse to paint sinceĀ finals are over šŸ™‚ Acrylic paints on what’s probably a London Planetree leaf fallen on HBS campus. Ā #LifeAtHBS #SnowAtHBS #BakerLibrary

TWSS – That’s What Sharapova Said

That day when Sharapova came to class at HBS, got to sketch her post class and then autograph it after the next class. I tried asking her out coz “Never miss an opportunity to score” – That’s What She (Sharapova) Said. Not! But she did say she like it šŸ™‚

Back to school v2.0

160829 Giridhari

Year 2 at HBS begins tomorrow. 2 things have not changed over the last 12 months – my issues with punctuality, hence a delayed effort for #Janmashtami celebrations (Krishna’s birthday) and my attempt to create a water colour art on the eve of the academic year. Here, #Krishna is miraculously holding the #Govardhan mountain with his little finger Ā amist a thunderstorm. It earned him the name #Giridhari and there are a lot of symbolic references in this event, but I shall skip them. Hope to make the most of the coming year! #Vamos

 

 

Holi-stically colourful

160324 Holi at HBS

Since I don’t have the colours, I’ll make do with these water colours – sketchy attempt to relive some spring break memories from Cartagena with a dash of holi “celebrations” before it’s officially past Holi!
(For my non Indian friends, Holi is the Festival of colours in India – is awesome fun when enjoyed responsibly and of course in much warmer weather :))

Wish you all a Happy Holi!

Autograph please?

Two legends, both giving a talk at HBS within a span of 10 days, quite normal. Ā How to make it more than normal – gifting them their charcoal portraits (of albeit their younger versions) and getting them autographed. Luckily all of that did happen, all thanks to HBS!

For those who are unaware, these are –

  1. Dr. Kamal Haasan – a celebrated South Indian actor who played the lead actorĀ in one of the only two Indian films included by TIME in its top 100 films of the 20th Century (Nayagan). The portrait includes two of my favourite quotes from his films.
  2. Sir Alex Ferguson – arguably one of the best football managers of one of the best football clubs (soccer clubs for those in USA) in the world with a career spanning 26 years, 38 trophies and of course, he’sĀ knighted! The best a ManU fan can get šŸ™‚

Back to cases and midterms!
