“This is my first attempt at creating illustrations. I signed up for the challenge to challenge myself to create stories based on a limited wordlist. To say that the other illustrations on the Pratham Books Facebook page have been very inspiring is an understatement. I hence decided to illustrate even though the drawing artist in me hasn’t grown beyond a 10 year old!!
CHALLENGING, EXCITING and CATHARTIC experience for me. I started illustrating on 29th after I had a concrete story idea. I
chose the train primarily because it is easier to draw!! It took me 5 hours to finish my drawings. My daughter let me use her crayons for my illustrations (happy hours for her watching TV in return). Thanks to my family for enduring a mother engrossed in drawings.”
