Thanks for your lovely words at my blog.

I love sketching too. Have been resting that passion for a long while now. Went off to explore other things like ceramic,glass and wood painting. Now into candle making! Anyways, work gets in the way more often than not :) Your sketch reminds of my own interest.

Congrats on your awards too :)

Meera said...

Congrats on your awards. Man, that sketch is lovely. We have so many artists in this blogosphere! Great job, dear!
About your question of Soba Noodles -
Look for them in the oriental section of your supermarket. You should be able to find them. You will see a variety of noodles there - Soba, Udon, Sai Fun, etc. Otherwise organic stores like whole foods,wild oats etc have them too.

Hi Shubha! Congrats on your well deserved award!! I am sorry to comment this late as I said in my previous comment on your post that I was busy relocating. That is definitly a beautiful sketch!! You seem to be a very good artists! The only thing I can draw well is Cartoons from Disney characts, and other comic book characts. That too by seeing them. So you good at drawing portraits too?
