Sketches from Helsinki

An afternoon in Munkkiniemi, an evening with a brass band, Alvar Aalto's studio and a waft through the park one very warm day

When I Am With You

When I am with you,
the city does not matter.

It does not matter
that metalled roads turn in on themselves,
or that homes lie abandoned
once people have poured into the earth
at the light of dawn.

It does not matter
that birds sing on rooftops instead of trees
or that spiders weave
thick webs behind the kitchen cupboard
in which we store chocolate biscuits
and green tea.

It does not matter
who calls
or answers the phone's call.

What matters only
(when I am with you)
is the deep sea that fills our room
from wall to wall
and skin to skin:
the sea that drowns us as we float;
the sea that fills our mouths with water
until tears run from our eyes
and onto our hands
and feet
on pillows made of promises
that cannot wait to tell the time
by the clock towers' beat.

When I am with you,
the city does not matter
for the cities we have lived in
are far beneath our sea.

यह बोली मेरी खोली है
गरीब है पर प्यारी है
छोटी है पर संतुष्ट
इसे मत छीन लेना मुझसे
इसके सहारे शब्दों के बड़े तूफ़ान झेलें हैं
अंग्रेजी कि कई बारिशें आई हैं
लेकिन फिर भी इसने मुझे आश्रय दिया है

कहो तो मैं इसे साथ ले आऊँ -
आपकी ईमारत की छाँव में
इसे एक कोने में टाक दूंगी-
वह शायद ही आपके काम आएगी
लेकिन मुझे कम से कम यह तो याद दिलाएगी
कि दिल कि बात कैसे कही जाती है

A bit of experimental stamping around as I'm trying out ways of developing patterns:

Purushartha Postcards

I'm really happy to finally share my secret project and my newest illustration work: the Purushartha (पुरुषार्थ) set of postcards.

The 5 postcards are Indigo printed on 280gsm archival paper. Each set is individually hand-numbered and only 100 sets have been produced. They will soon be available for retail at a friendly design store near you :)

P.S. they really do look yummy in person

Chai Postcards

The reason I've been missing in action is because I've been working on a couple of my own illustration projects. This is the first set of postcards inspired by my tea friends' tea drinking habits. Look out for them at a design store near you :)

Writing Letters - III


In case you're all wondering where I've vanished off too, I've been working on a few illustration projects. Also, I've been doodling with vectors the last few days and I've come up with these new wallpapers for the iPhone4. They're free to download so feel free to use them.

Simply right click on the image you want and save it to your iPhone. If you'd like them in other sizes for a different gadget, let me know via the comments form below.
