Hello! Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm currently participating in a contest for...Greeting Card Designs. I'm no artist, but I do like to think of myself as a professional doodler of sorts, and over the years I have been drawing many random things, but the last year or so especially, I've been shifting my focus on animals. When I saw this contest pop up, I knew I had to participate - not to win ofcourse, that would be too awesome to actually happen.

ANYWAY, so I came up with a set of 3 cards to fit the contest brief of "modern and quirky" - I'm putting the link below, and if you like them, and I really hope you do, do vote for them by using the "like" and/or "tweet" button on the same page. You can see them here: http://ohhdeer.com/competition/occasionally-fun/view-artist/8456/Lavanya


Thanks very much everyone!

POSTSCRIPT:

You know, at first when I started typing this post I thought it was all smarmy and not nice to like ask for votes in a blog that I haven't really been updating but then I saw the number of posts this year and good god have I been regular or what - ok so maybe not 2008 regular but I'm still writing! Did you guys know that it's been like what, 9 years since I even started blogging? My first blog was The Evil Autorickshaw which I started in 2005 when I was about 16 years old. I then deleted it because I'm generally an idiot like that, and started this blog in 2007. It's 2014 now, and it boggles the mind to think that I've actually grown up with this space - Board exams, my spectacularly embarrassing teens, internships, my spectacularly embarrassing adult years,failing and passing CA exams, becoming an actual Chartered Accountant, MARRIAGE, wow! It's been a good run, and if you're reading my blog, or used to read my blog, if you like my blog, or if you used to like my blog but now think it's crappy and disgusting wtf how did it even last this long - it doesn't matter - you were part of my growing up years, and if I'm here, I owe you a part of the credit so let's just go out now and get some doughnuts to celebrate.

    Thanku thanku thanku... (Thalaivar style).

    Periodically I go back and read some of my old blogs to remind me how stupid I was and how far I have come in life with a wife amidst strife using knife(!!!!).
