Last year, I got an opportunity to illustrate, design and compile a poetry book for someone. A collection of Urdu Poetry translated to Hindi, with each poem carrying it’s own colours and illustrations.
Without any prior experience, I learned while working at it and it was a great experience. Stressful at times, mainly because technology isn’t always reliable, but a good experience nonetheless.
As most of you, who have been reading my blogs for a really long time, are aware that I share a very strong bond with books and books is what this blog has mainly been based on.. for me to do a project like this has been extremely exciting. And as I’m typing this, I just finished designing and painting another book cover for someone else. (I’ll share it soon on my Instagram!) And hopefully, there’s more to come!
The book is currently available on Amazon Kindle:
And yesss, I designed and illustrated the book cover along with each and every page inside! It’s just a fun thing for me to say 😀
All the illustrations, including the book cover, were sketched and finished on the iPad Pro and in one of my favourite painting softwares, Procreate.
Here’s a quick time-lapse of one of the illustrations:
And here’s a sneak peak inside the book!
