My drawing talent was initially taken out in class rooms in my early childhood. I used to draw many human and natural elements in my note book cover pages. One sheet of plane paper was so precious for me in those days. I could recognize the caricature artist in me when I was in 7th standard. I drew the caricature of my Biology teacher with the body of a frog and was passed to all friends while singing National Anthem in the evening and could make laugh among my friends. I got punishment next day in the assembly for it but that was the incident that I started doing caricatures even if I was not aware of the name of the art form which I was doing. After my fine arts diploma, I was entered into my advertising career, but caricature continued as a passion. I entered into caricature art very seriously in the later years of my career.
I started my own advertising company "artude" in 2008 and caricature art was a special wing in it. Now caricature has a prominent place in corporate gifting field.
