write to resist

When I design these posters, I take many things into account. I enjoy drawing cute characters who have a place in the world without being objects of desire. I focus on their activities as well as their functional design. Here she has her hair tied back with a pencil tucked into it. Her back is curved, her head and gaze is focused on the typewriter keys and the page in front of her. She is wearing comfortable clothing without shoes, as most writers I know work from home. All of these components come together to convey her determination and dedication to her craft, to her cause.

To write is to resist. Download this and all the free resistance art here.

Keep writing, stay loud, stay fierce!

We will get through this with love.

I pushed aside some work to make these free images. You can find them here.

I will keep making more through the week. Stay strong, stay loud and keep resisting.

With love,

Nidhi

Book Expo was a wonderful whirlwind. I took the opportunity to walk to dinner and enjoy the city after a few interviews and my panel. I held a physical copy of Pashmina in my hands for the first time! Then I signed 100 advanced copies and was introduced as an author ^_^

I’ve been worried about not knowing what to do as a debut author and feeling generally lost. The trip alleviated many of my concerns. I know my worries are only temporarily silenced but while they are – I will embrace happiness.

For my love – happy birthday Nicky!

Our kitty Zimmy has been going through a host of health issues. I am trying be realistic while maintaining hope.

Meanwhile, I will be exhibiting at the Menlo Park Library Comicon on Saturday – please come by if you’re around! And today my first auto bio #comic was released on the Nib.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
