Did the Zookeeper Find What He Was Looking For? - Soumya Menon’s entry for the #6FrameStoryChallenge

Soumya Menon’s illustrations are a mishmash of vibrant colours, extraordinary detail and lots of action! We couldn’t take our eyes off them. We won’t say any more, because her work speaks for itself!

Sowmya is one of our 8 Illustrator Gurus who will be judging the #6FrameStoryChallenge. Here’s what she had to say.

“I was pretty excited at the prospect of creating my own story, especially one with only illustrations. It was interesting to see what happens with six words, some characters and a lot of fun. A digital library sounds like a fantastic idea. Just 6 words spark a story idea - and I can imagine how wonderful it'd be for grownups and children alike to create tales of their own, leading to an ever-growing collection of stories.”


(Soumya Menon is an animation filmmaker and illustrator. She likes to travel often, and try her hand at other occupations like painting walls. All her work is up here: http://scrambled-scribbles.blogspot.in/)
