Illustration Love...

Today , I share with you works of two amazing artists whose styles are so diverse from each other but have touched my heart in very special ways.Neend Meein
Kalyani Ganapathy is an artist/ illustrator, whose work has a profusion of vibrant colours, patterns and has a traditional Indian folk-art feel to it. ponnuku malli poo asai translated 'A little girl likes jasmine flowers'

Kalyani has started a new venture called 'Kye' which means hand. Here you will find unique handmade products like cushion covers, bags, dinner plates and trays. Do check it out!

Priya Sebastian is an awesome artist and illustrator who works mainly in charcoal and pastel.
Whenever I see her work I feel 'black' is the most beautiful colour. Congregation Self-Portrait
The most striking feature in most of her illustrations are the 'eyes' of her characters, they seem to express so many different emotions!Yama
She uses colours also beautifully just to give that extra punch.* Sigh*

I am still under the spell of the amazing works by these two extremely talented artists. Hope you enjoyed their work as much as I did showcasing them.:-)

Swoon. I really love the colors and shapes in the first series. They remind me of a kid's book that I just LOVED. Something about a donkey...now I'll have to call my Grandmother and ask her about it!

LOVED Kalyani's Neend Mein. Beautiful! & really liked Priya's self portrait and 'Yama' strong style, bold strokes. Super interesting & really different.

Nice post Arch.. the styles of the two artists are so different yet stunning in their own ways. Have been familiar with Priya's work, and a big fan of the same.. her illustrations have a way of speaking to you...
