Poonam Athalye specializes in hand-drawn illustration and animation and has illustrated for a number of children’s books and films. Her illustrations have appeared in many educational materials including those for NCERT and UNICEF.
Her illustrations have an old school feel to them which immediately took me back to my younger years when Amar Chitra Katha used to be everyone’s favourite comic.
Poonam’s illustrations recently made it to the finals of the ‘Katha Chitrakala Award’. Here are a few of them, made using gouache and water colours on 400 gsm, hot pressed, semi-satin water colour paper.
