Some artwork from the last couple of years

Since 2013 was an empty slot in my blog , which has been inactive for more than one and a half years now, I thought I will post the Halloween pumpkin carving and the Deepavali Rangolis I made for the years 2012 and 2013 as part of the events at Intel, Hillsboro (JF campus to be more precise)


Pumpkin Carving  (This is the only thing I like about Halloween , which otherwise I believe is full of Tamogunam) . The idea was from the internet but I entirely drew it (without tracing sheet etc) and adapted it to the size of the pumpkin I had.

I made this using the locally available flowers


Pumpkin Carving

This time I tried a theme with more intricate details. I think I could have done better with some proper tools.
The only implement I used to carve the following pumpkin is a sharp paper cutter.
The theme is Chinese Dragon and the phoenix. This motif has a lot of depth to it in Chinese thought.

 The thickness of the pumpkin was large enough to block any light coming from inside (even when I attempted to illuminate it).
