Pratham Books calendar 2012







Here are a  few illustrations I made for the Pratham books calender 2012. 
Do buy one if you can . All proceeds from the calendar sale will be used to buy books for Pratham Books Champions’ , who in turn will spread the joy of reading to children in their communities. Your gesture will thus bring us closer towards our mission of putting “a book in every child’s hand”!

Hi Priya.
Just got my copy of the calendar..it's amazing! I've been following your blog for a while and noticed that these drawings are a little different from your earlier work, like that Seasons calendar (also gorgeous!!!) Is this one made digitally? Also, would love to know a little about your process, how you approach a drawing and go from sketches to a final pic. Thanks!

Hey Lavanya
Thank you so much . Yes, this ones done digitally . I drew different elements on flash (the software)and then composed the whole thing using photoshop . Though I would ideally have first drawn sketches of each page , I didn't have the luxury of that much time on this occasion .
Thank you once again , for all the nice things said :)
