This word ‘sketchnama’ has been derived from parent word ‘aamalnama’ [ documentation of our deeds ]
It was year 2004 when my friend Allen Shaw gifted me my first proper sketchbook crafted at Kalaraksha, before this, I used to sketch on any available paper or books. This inspired me to do the documentation of my journey. today I have over 50 sketcbooks, where all events of my life have been recorded in form of a sketch, sketches ranging from classroom exercise, office work, trips, pilgrimage essentially every facet of my life even the tough times when I had to deal with the passing away of my elders.
This set of sketches are dedicated to all design students who have been associated with me during all these years, all for the love of sketchbooks and sketching.
