Caricaturist in mE

Sandur: April 1999

The summer of 1999 was a get together with cousins of my age. I had spent a fortnight at my uncle's house who was a doctor. My cousins, K~ and S~ excelled in paintings. The duo whould spend hours together projecting the best talent using brushes, canvas and fevicryl. And I would sit watching them even without a blink with my chin on my palm. :)

"Why don't you try this?" K~ suggested.
"No. I am not good at all these like you both," I replied.
"Unless you try, how can you say you are not good at it", S~ motivated.
"I can draw only an AMOEBA," holding a brush and dipping it in one the colors.

Here is what I did after I returned from summer vacation. It has been more than a decade and I smile when I look at these caricatures I made. The pages have turned "yellow". I have to preserve them!
