This week, we'd like you to meet Sonal Gupta, illustrator of The Wednesday Bazaar. Sonal loves experimenting with bright colours and visuals. An Animation Designer from MIT Institute of Design, she loves illustrating for children because it takes her back to being a kid. She likes to draw and paint with hands because she loves the feel of textures, paper and paints. The digital medium, according to her, is just a sophisticated tool to enhance her hand-drawn illustrations.
She loves stationery and collecting matchboxes. She uses the matchbox as a canvas to paint and, guess what, even her visiting card is a matchbox!
Sonal is currently working on developing educational products for children. She also conducts weekly storytelling sessions for Vidya, an organisation for educating and empowering women and children.
