baby barish

After working five weeks non-stop it feels very good to be home. I will be traveling a lot this year and working on new projects that will be announced sometime soon (I hope). My time for personal art is minimal. This image has been floating in my head for weeks – our daughter absolutely loves barish (rain) just like me.

I will be speaking on a panel this Saturday through CAAMfest about Pashmina and storytelling along with some stellar folks – Thi Bui who’s beautiful graphic memoir just released, The Best We Could Do.  Innosanto Nagara who wrote the essential kids book, A is for Activist. If you’re in Oakland please come by!

I will be in Cleveland in April as well as Juneau, Alaska. You can always see my upcoming events here.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

It’s been a whirlwind of traveling back and forth from southern California – I’ve finished five watercolors while signing, meeting loads of wonderful people and catching up with old friends. Thank you to everyone who’s come to say hi! This Friday and Saturday will be the last of my Disney residency – I’m planning on painting Alice in Wonderland and Lilo and Stitch. If you’re around I hope you’ll swing by! For now these are only available as originals and if Wonderground Gallery receives enough requests they will make them into prints.

If you’re interested in purchasing these originals you can! They come framed, matted and each is priced at $600. WonderGround Gallery can take orders via email at: merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com  or by telephone at: 877-560-6477.  Just let Mail Order know that they are interested in the Nidhi Chanani artwork from WonderGround Gallery West and they would be happy to let them know if it’s currently available.

After I return I’ll switch into Emerald City Comicon gear! I’ll be in Seattle at the show from March 2-5, booth 409 and on five panels. I’ll post more about that soon. For now I’ll take a tiny break.

I hope you have a great week!

summer rain

shelter owls + zazzle + live drawing

It’s a cozy rainy day here. I haven’t created any new illustrations because I’m pushing forward on Pashmina. I am producing 2-3 pages a day. It may seem like I’m not drawing but I’m drawing more than ever before! My deadline for completion is approaching. The book won’t be available until Fall of next year but I willcomplete it this summer. My publisher will then haveample time for corrections, production and of course marketing! I thought as I got closer I would feel calmer, but I just feel more nervous! I still have a good stretch to wait, so hopefully mynerveswill subside.

Meanwhile, we’ve updated our zazzle shop with loads of products. We have phone cases, wallet cases, kindle and ipad covers, pillows (!), mugs and more. They’re having a 22% off sale today only for all orders, use the codeLUVOURPLANET.

Also I will be at Trickster in Berkeley for a Mother’s day live drawing event on April 30th. If you’d like a custom drawing for mother’s day or just because, come by with a photo (on your phone is fine). Limited number of slots will be available.

That’s all from me! Back to producing pages ^_^
