The idea-toons began as an experiment with visual content. Then I used them to illustrate my posts (mainly the ones on XX Factor). The strips each stand by themselves but in some cases, context is drawn from the post. Enjoy!

Update: Bitstrips are my new StripCreator! And the girl in the green dress is back, a little older but (I hope) just as whacky!

I want to kick the ass of the next person to demand ‘kickass content’. Content is not a professional wrestler.



I grew up here. ‘Nuff said. #AndheriGirl



The land of potholes, endless metro construction and Bollywood aspirants. #AndheriGirl



Bombay summer + traffic + construction = Andheri Heat #AndheriGirl


#AndheriGirl fights grime with hourly bath breaks.



It will probably be an Andheri citizen who discovers time travel. #AndheriGirl


I’m campaigning for a new timezone: Andheri Traffic Time. #AndheriGirl





Because I’m a through and through #AndheriGirl

Idea gets some air

Idea in her natural habitat Idea takes a beach walk

The album can be seen at StripCreator.

      @Rohit Sane: Actually the idea-toons have been around for years (see the date on the first one). But yes, BlogCamp was the much needed kick to get spewing again.
