How do you romanticise every tiny chore you do and make your life beautiful? You paint it. These four women from the city, Bakula Nayak, Kalyani Ganapathy, Shreyas R Krishnan and Trusha Sawant bring their thoughts to life through their colourful and impeccable illustrations and are displaying their work in the first edition of My Cup of Tea, starting today at the gallery.
The Illustrator's Collective is Bakula Nayak, Kalyani Ganapathy, Trusha Sawant, and me - four people with varying styles and interests, brought together by a love for narrating through the drawn image. Through an amazing chain of events (involving a himym-like story of how we met, too many teas, and countless emails, google docs and hangouts), the four of us are exhibiting our work this Fridayonwards, at Kynkyny Art in Bangalore.
'My Cup of Tea' is the first edition of the Collective, and our first exhibition together. Drop in to meet us and see some new illustrations that we have worked on specially for this exhibit, across varying media, techniques and thoughts!
This year, Kyoorius and British Council teamed up to offer one day workshops on design writing, conducted by William Shaw across three cities - Delhi, Bombay and Bangalore. Participants at this workshop were invited to pitch stories for a book that would be released at the Kyoorius Design Yatra. It has been a while since we took a break from Little Design Book, and I was glad for this opportunity to indulge in writing about design.
Creating Change features twelve essays by designers, architects and writers, discussing design and its possibilities in India. Many thanks to Aanchal Sodhani (British Council) and William Shaw for their guidance in shaping the written pieces and Shumi Bose (Blueprint magazine) , Patrick Burgoyne (Creative Review) and Robert Wilson for the online masterclasses.

At the next concert you attend, don’t be surprised if the girl next to you whips out a notebook and crayons and begins to sketch the performers.
You may be sitting next to Shreyas R. Krishnan, a young Bangalore graphic designer who has an unusual hobby: sketching concerts.
