My first Children’s Illustrated book !

Delighted to receive my very first illustrated book for Children. 'The making of Dog ' is a story of how god decided to make the dog, beautifully written by Priya Sawhney for children from 4 to 6 years of age.

Cheerful, cute and colourful is how I have drawn all the animals in this book and I absolutely love how beautiful the colours, forms and layouts finally look together. A special thank you goes out to a very dear friend, Shilpa Shirish, who is behind all the lovely compositions .We’ve had a great time working on this together and might I add that we make a great team! 

I’ve been inspired by some of my favorite book Illustrators like Shell Silver stein ,Meg Mc. Kinley , Prashant Miranda and Atanu Roy of Magical Indian Myths, while working on this project.

Above is a sneak peak into a few of my favourite pages in the book, its is now available at all leading book stores in India.

Overjoyed to have finally illustrated a children’s book, I can now scratch that off my bucket list!

Beautiful Gifts
I ‘ve been surrounded by lovely things given to me these days . Here are a few of my favorites.Japanese waterproof fountain pen ink and metal travel brushes that came in straight from Spain thanks to my wonderful fiancé who always manages to find the rarest of rare art products for me.
A golden Umbrella bar key chain  and  a beautiful wood section given to me by my father to draw on. The small notebook  ’ It’s a wild world ’ is a self gift.
I am dying to put all these lovelies to good use! I can foresee some good travel days in the coming future.

The National geographic traveler March issue is out !

Inside, you will find my illustrated maps of the city of beautiful ancient temples and caves in the Southern part of India called Badami and Jamnagar with the beautiful Lakhota palace located in the lake right at the heart of this city.

I am dying to visit all the places I have drawn. I don’t know if I will ever make enough money to travel to all the places , but I sure know if and when the time comes, I will have all my maps in place!
