Mithila Ananth Brings An Amateur Magician to the #6FrameStoryChallenge

The #6FrameStoryChallenge has led us to discovering so many things - different mediums, different styles of illustrators we already work with, new illustrators and much more. We believe that the support the illustrator community was showing each other on Facebook and Twitter encouraged so many more illustrators to jump right into this challenge.

In this blog post, we welcome Mithila Ananth to the big and wondrous world of children's publishing and wish her luck on her new journey. Check out her story : "The Amateur Magician".

As someone who got into illustrating fairly recently (you can tell!), this challenge by Pratham Books was a brilliant opportunity for me to grow as an illustrator, as well as contribute towards helping build children's imagination (my dream job!). The fact that the illustrations will be a part of an open-source platform, - ready to be used in multiple languages with almost limitless possibilities - is just the icing on the cake :) Thanks Pratham Books for such a fun opportunity. Will be looking forward to more challenges like this in the future :)


(Mithila Ananth has always wanted to be a children's author, and since that seems to be taking some time to happen, she figured why not do the next best thing - draw for children's books! You can follow her work here.)
