"I've Been Glued to My Chair" - Kalyani Ganapathy on the #6FrameStoryChallenge

We are hosting the #6FrameStoryChallenge - a challenge for illustrators to come up with a children's story using just 6 illustrations. All the action is taking place on the Facebook event page (so, join the event to get the latest updates and more). Join us to see the new worlds our illustrator friends are taking us to.

We also have 8 Illustrator Gurus who are part of this challenge. Their 6 frame stories will be released through the Challenge and also showcased on the platform. 

Kalyani Ganapathy is the second Illustrator Guru who sent in her story. Kalyani talks about why she took the #6FrameStoryChallenge.


Kalyani : I love the idea of multilingual publishing, I have been with a book in my hand and a story on my lips ever since I can remember. I've always wanted to contribute towards books being available to everyone in some way or the other. As an adult I love being able to bring that magical, imaginary world alive through illustration. So, I'm glad to be contribute via illustration. And, before I get too serious, stringing a story with 6 words has been one of the best experiences I've had as an illustrator, I've been glued to my chair since I started!



Inspired?  Sign up for the #6FrameStoryChallenge and get started!

Don't forget to join the Facebook event page to follow all the excitement and inspiration being shared by other artists.

(Kalyani Ganapathy is a visual story teller. Her illustrations are stories about friends, strangers and herself. She loves patterns found in nature, textile motifs and books of any kind. She actually woke up one morning, got out of her graphic designer avatar, walked into an art shop, bought a bag full of material and started drawing. In the near future she hopes to be a writer and illustrator of a little bit of whimsy.)
