I’ve always been an avid lover of children’s story and picture books because of their power to transport you to a different world. With the rise of the internet and social media, we are exposed to the work of many talented illustrators and designers but one that stands out is Priya Kuriyan.

Priya Kuriyan is an illustrator and animator based in Delhi, India. She graduated from the prestigious National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad and has since illustrated a plethora of graphic novels and comic books for children and adults. She uses her platform to discuss the political and feminist issues prevalent in India.

The thing that makes Priya so popular and one of my personal favorites is her eye for detail. Each of her illustrated characters has their own unique personality and quirks and she is able to bring that she brings out so beautifully by paying attention to their body forms, expressions, and clothing. This sets her illustrations apart and brings them to life.

Priya Kuriyan’s work shows beautiful experimentation with various mediums from color pencils to paper cut-outs. My favorite of all her work is her ‘Garden Variety Humor‘ series where she uses various leaves, seedpods and other plant parts which she combines with a hand-drawn picture to make an illustration.
