Mumbai Sketches: Ganna Juice and Nimbu Soda

There is no way I would ever been allowed to eat or drink anything from a street vendor as a kid. Which might explain my deep fondness for street food and drink. I had plenty of fresh lime soda and sugarcane juice on the streets of Mumbai.

I also sketched both vendors.

Here are both sketches. They’re also the answer to that question I get asked often “What do you do first, line or color?”


These sketches were done as part of the weeklong workshop I ran in Jan 2023 in Mumbai with Zainab. It was such an incredible experience that we are running it again in Jan 2024. If you think you want to join in on this adventure, join the interest list by writing to me to let me know.

Here are the earlier posts in this series of sketches from India:

• My great, great grandparents home and more sketches from Surat
