Behind The Lie
Author: Asha Nehemiah
Illustrator: Aindri Chakraborty
Publisher: Pratham Books, Storyweaver
AD: Kaveri Gopalakrishnan​​​​​​​
"Valli and Ramesh live under a cloud of fear because of their father, who has a frightening temper. Will things ever change for them? A story about domestic violence, grit and hope."



Process:

The illustrations convey the violence through little visual clues rather than actually show the abuse taking place. In places objects are included as suggestions: like belt draped over sofa, broken chair, half melted ice or packet of peas as cold compress. 

Character designs:
My favourite character: Valli 
Drafts to final:
