Here is my contribution for the RAID Creator visions Trading card set! This is a character created by myself and Andrew Healey. My favourite part of the illustration is really subtle, and that is the stethescope that is casually thrown across his shoulder like a scarf.

Happy New Year 2023
From our apartment window in downtown Toronto, we had a great view of the fireworks this year. A thought that always runs in my is that anything that we get enjoyment and entertainment from has some root of fear and anxiety in it. Fireworks are these giant explosions in the sky and we love them, but they are kind of like bombs going of. They're not though, and thats probably what gives us relief and thrill at the same time.
The final version for this amazing infographic poster is finally here... well almost! I'm running a kickstarter campaign to fund it's printing. If you're reading this, check it out on www.kickstarter.com/projects/daneshm/timelesscharacters
Back to Normal after the pandemic
This was a fun piece to do, and I'm really happy with the end result, which is rare! Was great just to be able to go in black and white. The only problem is that it literally took all day and this is probably not sustainable on a long term basis, unless I make this the only thing I do (which is the dream folks).
The Ikea Spy Scandal
It took me a while to get this just right! I may have overdone the caption area, but there were just so many potential jokes in there that I didn't cut anything. I like how much attitude Billy the Bookshelf has, really strutting his stuff.
Crappy situation for a fly
I have to say that this is one of my favourite ones so far. To me personally, I don't know how others reacted, but I really enjoyed the idea as well as drawing it and even colouring it. I also like whats insinuated in the joke but its still a bit mysterious, open to interpretation really...
In my mind this one was terrible, but now that I look at it, now so bad. I quite like the drawing, and nothing is more fun that drawing algae on rocks.
I'm happy with how this one is illustrated... strangely the one drinking the water ended up on a higher plane, and thats because I didn't check my perspective properly as I drew and had to improvise when I was inking!
Mango Pickle Cartoon
This was such a fun one to draw and was great to have the contrast between the sweet mango and the mango pickle. Whenever I post these on Instagram though I never like how they look on my phone screen... I feel like these drawings need to be seen bigger.
Have been thinking of this joke for a loong time now, and finally its out. It would be funny if Ghee Man was always trying to clarify and explain things to people in an annoying way... and Sheera woudl be constantly drunk and stumbling around as his sidekick. I realise that this is very specific desi humour, but thats also why its funny!
