What is 'The Magician's Gift' - Find Out In Hari Kumar Nair's Story for the #6FrameStoryChallenge

Another birthday story has arrived and this time it is from Hari Kumar Nair. The landscape Hari has created for this story is so magical - we almost can't believe that he doesn't use this style often. Good work Hari! Find 'The Magician's Gift' in this magical forest

It was fun working with just words to stitch up a narrative. It exercised my brain quite a bit. As a result of doodling out the words I formed a style that I wouldn't normally do. This challenge opened up a new way for me to conceptualize.


(Hari Kumar Nair is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Chennai. He has graduated from Srishti school of art design and technology with a diploma in visual communication.)
