The Indian Witch Hunt

In spite of having put this up on Facebook where it got some 3000 hits and so many shares, one feels obliged to put up these pictures on the blog as well, since this is after all a platform for my work and there are a few regular readers I know who are not on Facebook.
The editor at Livemint sent me an email acknowledging that there were many, many queries and compliments for these illustrations. He certainly paired my style with the right story. The feedback actually encourages me to attempt a few more comics.Who would have thought that would happen?

i'm very glad you posted here, as i wouldn't have gotten to see it-- what a terrifying story, and your style indeed matches it perfectly. i love that it's garnering the proper reaction!

congratulations! :)

Hi Zoe, yes, it is a terrifying story isn't it? Unfortunately it is also a reality in Indian villages.
Thank you for your comment. It is always good to hear from you.

I'm glad you posted it here too, and on Google+. (I followed the link from Google+, which is unusual because I am rarely there!) Now I know that there is value in posting stuff all over the place! And the story plus your art is really, really wonderful. Well done and congratulations, my friend!

Oh yes, I get so much value in posting 'stuff all over the place' indeed. Look! It got me your charming comment!
Thank you :-)

Wonderfful! The pictures. And the news that you are going to draw graphic novels (nobody says comics anymore, try to keep up!) I am extatic and hoping to order that Indian witch hunt. With that style, you could also illustrate any Edgar Allan Poe story!

Thank you Mushroom Hunter. I hope I get to do an Edgar Allan Poe story or something similar. Moody atmospheric illustrations are engrossing to do.
