Remembering to forget …
I'm on a semi-hiatus this week, a quasi-lacuna or even a mini-interruptus of sorts, and in lieu of the usual Snarkish blather, I post this pencil comp for a graphic novel I'm trying to get started. It's a re-telling of Shakuntala and on this page we can see the royal rishi Kaushika taking a hiatus of his own, from the hectic urban realities of Connaugh Place to the quieter surroundings of the ur-forest of the Mahabharat.
Alas, there's a woman involved and Kaushika's holiday is soon going to degenerate into a quick bit of nooky and then post-coital trip to Wal-Mart to get more stuff for the ashram …
Since 1985 I've worked on a variety of SF, humor, children’s and
literary titles such as Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award winner D.A. Powell’s
Cocktails, BSFA-award winner Adam Roberts’ 20 Trillion Leagues Under the Sea and Martin Olson’s NYT-best selling Adventure Time Encyclopaedia. My novel, American Candide, has just been published by Rosarium Publishing.
