Pratham Books: #6FrameStoryChallenge


I am so excited and honored to have made a way on the Pratham Books blog. Pratham Books came up with 6 Frame Story Challenge at the beginning of this year which required framing a story with any 6 words from a wordlist given and illustrating the same without any text. They also offered 6 narratives. So there was an option to either pick one of their 6 narratives or frame a story with 6 words of your own. I chose to go ahead with one of their narratives ” The Dragon’s Train Ride”.
You can view all of my 6 frames on the Pratham Books blog.

Musical Cat!!


I was working on these whimsical characters for some time now. I hope you like this Children’s art illustration.


Say cheese!!

Faber Castell Polychromos color pencil  are water-proof, smudge-proof, unbreakable color pencils which are wax based. They come in sets of 24, 36, 60 and 120.
Recently I got my set of 120 and I am just loving them so much. I have been putting them to a lot of use and am still learning the techniques to use these pencils. All the color shades are so vibrant. Layering is so easy.
I wanted to sketch a mouse since a long time – a mischievous mouse character who just jumps whenever he sees cheese! So here is a mouse and cheese illustration. But I am wondering what name to give this character. Why don’t you suggest one?

Quality time!

Here is an illustration of a little boy along with his best friend at the seashore enjoying the cool breeze and watching the birds fly by. Sometimes, more than the play, spending time admiring the nature with your friends or loved ones is the best quality time spent. :)
