Happy to share that three of my illustrations have been Chosen for American Illustration 37. I made these last year of which one is personal, one for Google for celebrating one of the first Indian woman doctor, and for Fast Company on Coming out at Work. Many thanks to the judges, and especially much much thanks to the wonderful art directors I worked with- Florian Bachleda and Erich Nagler!!!
For a story about a young woman who came out as a bisexual at her workplace after which she was constantly "corrected" and stopped from expressing herself by her colleagues and seniors. The story is part of a digital feature that features 7 stories on "What it is like to be out at work in 2017". Each story was illustrated by a different illustrator using a color from Pride colors.
So the initial direction for the assignment was to use Orange hue and include the workplace in sketches. After the sketch was approved, I made different color versions of the final piece.
I also had fun drawing the view of buildings from the windows which is how the night view was of glittering Freedom Towers from my studio window back when I was a grad student at SVA (those sleepless nights!).
Many thanks to creative director Florian Bachleda who is always a pleasure to work with.
