When we put out the call for the #6FrameStoryChallenge, we encouraged illustrators to give us a glimpse into the stories they were creating. Thanks to Twitter, we got a sneak peek into the dreamy landscape Kruttika Susarla was creating. Go on and see the magical adventure a birthday girl sets off on.
Kruttika tells us why she took the challenge :
I took part in it because I found the idea of creating a story without words very exciting. Not only does it give people (who can't write for nuts) like me, a way of sharing silly stories, but, it also has the ability to become more than one story depending on the viewer! I also wanted to be a part of sharing something through Creative Commons, that can be put to use for a good cause, such as this.Kruttika Susarla's Illustrations for the #6FrameStoryChallenge by Pratham Books
