Let's start with some inspiring art first..
Sunandini Banerjee for Seagull
Sunandini Banerjee, much in the manner of a magpie, collects images from a wide variety of sources and creates innovative, humourous digital collages—a potpourri or a medley or a luck bag, call it what you will. Created for the annual Seagull Books catalogue, this year’s collages are in the nature of contemporary miniature. There are 86 works on display from June 1st. Each collage is printed on archival paper is also available for sale online (shipped worldwide). Thanks Kavitha for sharing Sunandini's work with us!
Maulshree Somani's Illustration
Maulshree has been sharing her creative work with me for some time, and she sent an email to me this week with details of her latest project - a children's book written by Bhakti Mathur that she has illustrated. Maulshree was kind enough to send me a pdf of the book, and I loved her vibrant art work. You can reach Maulshree at this email ID.
