Drawings by Arup Datta

Arup and I are friends on Facebook. How that happened I don’t know, but it was Kismet because the other day I saw one of Arup’s sketches and really enjoyed it, then I looked and found more. I think Arup’s work is wonderfully poetic and literary, and more than that just plain fun to look at. I think a dozen drawings are about the limit for our attention spans on the Internet—More is certainly Less—but this will be a baker’s dozen, or let’s call it a poet’s dozen, thirteen sketches by Arup Datta. I hope you enjoy them.
