The very first Indian picture book I've illustrated is out! It is called Raindrops and can be bought here.
Since I'm staying away from home for a few months, I haven't yet seen the printed book. I cannot wait to get back and hold it in my own hands. No screen can replace the feel, smell, touch of paper, especially a book, printed and bound!
The physical book has a value that never comes to any digital version of it - a view that many may contest, but that I increasingly subscribe to.
The happiest part, though, is that, in addition to English, the book is available in eight Indian languages!
Here's some of the work created during the project.
