GRAPHIC DESIGN WAS NEVER MY DREAM CAREER FROM THE BEGINNING. MY CAREERS SWAYED FROM MEDICINE TO PHOTOGRAPHY TO DESIGN IN JUST A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THIS WAS MAINLY DUE TO THE FACT THAT I WANTED TO MAKE A LOT OF MONEY AS A KID, BUT OBVIOUSLY I MATURED. SOMETHING ABOUT DESIGN REALLY FASCINATED ME AFTER I TRIED USING PHOTOSHOP TO MAKE A POSTER FOR A CHARITY ORGANIZATION THAT WAS PART OF MY SCHOOL CALLED THE LEO CLUB ( A SUB DIVISION OF LIONS CLUB INTERNATIONAL ). IT WASN'T AMAZING BUT IT INSPIRED PEOPLE. I WONDERED THE WIDE RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES DESIGN COULD BE USED TO INFLUENCE PEOPLE INTO A GOOD CAUSE. OVER TIME DESIGN BECAME A PASSION, SKETCHING, WHICH WAS ALREADY A HOBBY, BECAME THE NEW WAY TO THINK AND INNOVATE.
I WANTED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT DESIGN AND PURSUE IT AS A CAREER. IT BECAME A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF OPPORTUNITY. I AM OFFICIALLY IN LOVE WITH DESIGN. DESIGN IS ALL ABOUT INSPIRING PEOPLE, SHOWING THE MASSES A DEEP MESSAGE USING YOUR ART. PHOTOGRAPHY IS STILL A PART OF ME AS A HOBBY BUT NOW ITS ANOTHER WAY FOR ME TO CAPTURE WHAT I SEE AROUND ME TO USE FOR INSPIRATION FOR LATER PROJECTS. BILLET MY PORTFOLIO'S NAME IS ACTUALLY A FRENCH WORD WHICH MEANS TICKET. AS IN MY TICKET TO A NEW WORLD, NEW EXPERIENCE, NEW IDEAS AND MEETING A GET DIVERSITY OF PEOPLE.

THE SELF PORTRAIT WITH PENCIL, BUT HOW COULD I LEAVE ALL THE COLOR OUT OF LIFE AS I BELIEVE AN ARTIST'S SELF PORTRAIT IS A REFLECTION OF HIM.
HOW SUCH A VAGUE AD COULD BE MADE SO MUCH BETTER.
Added color to the amazing picture of PARAM PUJYA YOGIJI MAHARAJ- A hindu great spiritual leader of the BAPS Sanstha.
A PENCIL PORTRAIT of the human that is ABSOLUTELY in love with MANDALA ART- A small Gift on A4 paper.
NAVRATRI- An Indian festival where Gujarati people celebrate by wearing bright clothes and doing GARBA AND RAAS ( Gujarati forms of dance). Inspired from that a different type of painting where individual painted pieces of paper were put together on a styrofoam sheet of 5 feet by 5 feet .
HAKUNA MATATA! Back in Africa this is a very important phase. Together with Timon, Pumba and Rafiki the world got to know this. There are similar art works to this, but NOT with the level of detail on a A4 paper.
Dedication of a monk is phenomenal. Living for the betterment of the World. REAL INSPIRATION on how we as designers should use our power to change the world.
The beauty of a human face.
A rather special sketch for me. The FIRST ever gift to my nephew from the first ever picture taken of him
