These were the first two images i had created for this project.....mainly i wanted to freeze on the look and feel for the whole project...CC's cab parked in a no parking zone became part of the story later on as he always parks his cab in a no parking zone in the story...fukku looks very healthy in this one but for the book i made him lean a bit more to his left.
These were the very first set of characters designed after the first draft of the story...sher khan and tithi dixhit couldn't make it to the final story.. instead 4 talibans and a gang of russian assians were added to the story
This one shows various stages of development for IKE's character...Since he was the lead character he needed to look right...from the start i wanted him to look like just another tourist in mumbai...so in the end everyone chose the orange kurta and cotton pajama look.
I am based in mumbai and working as a freelance illustrator/concept artist. So far i have provided illustration and animation work for Virgin comics, Grey worldwide, Lowe, Publicis ambience, Mtv,Vh1, Saatchi & Saatchi,Hungama tv etc.
