I usually carry Nikon's Coolpix P2 with me but you will see more of illustrations than photographs in my portfolio. And thats only because I love to illustrate. You can also have a look on some of my paintings/caricatures and craftwork on url provided above.
I used to love reading but these days I am not able to read much except daily newspapers. Reading not only helps you to visualize, it also takes you to a different world. Besides reading I like to design in Photoshop because it is my favourite software and I also love to create small animation films.
Dont fall in love with your artwork, you might not create another one!
