Bear With Me - Jithin Jacob's Story for the #6FrameStoryChallenge

So, receiving entries for the #6FrameStoryChallenge is obviously exciting. But it is also interesting to see how illustrators found out about this challenge and why they chose to participate. Here's what Jithin Jacob told us when he asked him:

How I was introduced to the #6framestorychallenge? 
*Phone rings* 
Me: Hello 
My friend (yells): INBOX!! NOW!! 
That's all it took! As soon as I read the guidelines, I couldn't wait to get my hand on the pencil since selecting 6 words from a list and turning it into story is something beyond fun. It is creativity at it's best, it's adventure...and for a room with twists and turns, I'm in!
It is 1:41 A.M and my creative juices are still flowing. The #6framestorychallenge brings out the best in me, and this is by far the most inspiring project I've laid my hands on, in 2015! Recommended for every artist out there!

(Jithin Jacob (also known as Jithin Jacob Draws) is a freelance artist/illustrator based out of Bangalore. Hesays, "I was introduced to art by my father during my 5th grade since nothing productive came out of me till then! Simply put, I draw stuff on paper; but when said professionally, I create vectors for a living. My work is born and raised on a steady diet of green tea, rock, paper and ink!"
