So this is how the Pickle Yolk pages get designed. With Abhishek Jha at his Atonal Indian design-cum-music studio, giving final touches to our forthcoming pickle yolk ‘Love Like That’ (the sumptuous illustrations are by Gautam Benegal). Not seen in the pic: yummy aloo parathas, loads of cigarette smoke, the funky (and some clunky) music instruments, the massive ego-bruising arguments (it finally comes down to which of us is the more creative sibling :p ) and the fabulous Usha Prasad who is busy clicking us. It’s fun until one of us ends up calling Mom up to settle the usual I’ve-always-been-better-at-this crisis, and the verdict is announced over failing mobile signal. 🙂 IMG_4758 IMG_4771
