A piece about the man I have now turned into my 2017 calendar — the Prime Minister of Albania and my new …

#TrueStory: Overheard in Lakme Fashion Week

LFW Feature

The fashion world is beautiful, bold, and surreal. And the Pyjamas are shameless eavesdroppers.

About an artist… of wasting time!

comic3-2 featured

About an artist I’m an artist This one was the first of the series. Fifty percent of the reason I like to paint is the romance of it all, but sometimes I feel like I get caught up in that.
