Why did you pick this picture?
I picked this one because I like the crazy child baking on her own vibe it gives. Its simple and it shows the basic sketch that I draw before starting all my illustrations.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I had to decide a topic for an illustration project in college. So I decided to illustrate a cook book with this super motivated to cook child as the main character. And this was part of some of the sketches I did for the project
What does this art mean to you?
It’s a reminder of the child in me and all of us . To stop worrying too much and “Hakuna matata”!!!!
What can you tell us about yourself ?
I’ve been drawing since my child hood and I don’t mind doing just that for my entire life :-p . I have just completed my degree in advertising and illustration last month . I love it when people imagine stuff that’s never seen before and actually get it on paper . Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy and Disney’s Tarzan are a huge influence !!!
What more can you tell us about your art?
I continously read and study about illustration and drawing to keep refining myself . Can’t say I have a particular style coz I’m still experimenting to find my own unique voice . But I love to observe people and get those observations in my work. Since it’s goin to be a long way from here to where I want to be I just hope I learn a lot and be able to share it with people who want to start a career in art .
