I'm glad to be part of this wonderful anthology of sci-fi and fantasy short stories and
Anita Roy, this book is a collaboration between Australian and Indian writers and
illustrators. It's been published by Zubaan books in India, and the Australian edition
which is due to be out in February 2015 has been published by Allen and Unwin
An illustration from the story I worked on, made it to the cover :-)
Kate Constable, a wonderful writer from Australia wrote a beautiful piece
for it called 'Swallow the moon'. I had such a good time illustrating it, and
collaborating with her on it.

I was one of the three illustrators who was part of the the wonderful 'You read they learn' campaign organised by Pratham books and the Hindustan Times this month . On May 1st, thousand of copies of 'Colours of Delhi' got printed on the front page of HT (imagine !) and were in circulation in the Delhi, Gurgaon and NCR region. The pages could be cut out and folded into a book and the story could be read out to children who cannot read, are learning to read or given to children who cannot afford books. Check out some images here .This book is available for download here http://issuu.com/htonline/docs/yrtl . Jasjyot is one of the other illustrators who was part of the campaign. Do check out his work at http://ultichhatri.blogspot.in/ . You will be left amazed.

I usually don't take on logo/branding projects , but this one was hard to resist since it had to do with food !
