Anaya's Thumb
 
Illustrated for reading online, this is the first book that I have created for Pratham Books that has been customised for reading on the tablet. 'Anaya' is the story of a little girl who is always sucking her thumb. The book is about how she percieves the world around her. I have combined pencil strokes and thumbprints to create playful illustrations, with the confidence that curious children will actually start making fun artworks using thier own thumbprints!
Reading on the tablet comes naturally to children from the 'smart' generation. The advantage of such a story is that they can zoom into illustrations,
hear the story, make the text bigger while learning pronounciations as well.

Annual Pratham Books Calender, 2014
 
Making children aware of hidden stories and interesting facts about cities in India, this calender was bright, and beautifully illustrated by hand. It experiments with cutout windows, while also exploring different printing methods.

Cat in the Ghat
 
This book is based on the life of National Geographic Award winning photographer Sandesh Kadur and his hunt for the mysterious 'Pogeyan' cat. Written by Ambika Rao, this story is fun to read with children, as a result of its endless rhymes. The illustrations that I have created are bold, colourful and messy, keeping in mind the colours, the rainfall, and the wilderness on the Western Ghats of India where the story is set. It has been published in six Indian laguages, including Urdu.
