Eat the Sky Drink the Ocean

I'm glad to be part of this wonderful anthology of sci-fi and fantasy short stories and 
graphic narratives for young adults. Edited by Payal Dhar, Kirsty Murray 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.

Sometimes, ideas one starts out with while designing covers, change drastically
towards the end of the process. Bystanders is a story about the lives  of 3 people,
and a large part of the story is set in the 1970's. I enjoyed figuring out
different styles for this cover. The 3rd option is what will  finally go to press.

I am Oscar

Sometimes, I'm lucky and get  to read really nice books when I have  to illustrate their covers . I thoroughly enjoyed reading this witty as well as heartbreaking (in parts) book by Ken Spillman .
