I enjoyed drawing the illustrations for this story. When I requested him for one, it was almost immediately written and sent to me by my long time virtual friend Slogan Murugan of Mumbai Paused fame. Not only that, it had my favourite subject - fish (or rather lack of fish, which is why I got to draw only one fish), but still, drawing the sea, boats, troubled wives...all was good to do.These illustrations have been done with pastel and graphite on absolutely lovely pre-cut C a grain Canson paper.

Here are some of the illustrations -

You can find photographs taken by Slogan Murugan about this subject here>>.

Very beautiful. I always loved the grainy/sandy look of your drawings, and it certainly is perfect for a scene on a beach. And your mastery of colors is really impressive : the way you render the day, night and early morning light... Wow!
