Another quick comic without edits done in an hour!

I’ve added some new originals and a bunch of deep discount prints to my shop – $5 and $10 prints! They’re selling fast, so grab em while you can ^_^ There will be more added by the end of today.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week.

love in the leaves

I had the privilege of creating this custom illustration for a lovely couple who will marry this fall. I’ve been buried under deadlines and at times unsatisfying work. Drawing this reminded me why I love my job.

Next week I will be at Denver Comicon as their special guest, I will participate on a slew of panels as well as have an artist alley table and I’m excited to share that my office manager, Nickole, will have her original art there as well! I will kick of the weekend with a presentation at the Denver public library on Thursday. If you’re around the area, I’d love to see you!

I hope you have a great week!

san francisco streets (and signing)

My first custom illustration of the year and I was so happy with how it turned out!

I will be speaking and signing copies of PASHMINA at Books Inc (Laurel Village)  in San Francisco this Sunday. I hope to see you there!

Also, my comic Eggs was reprinted today in Mutha Magazine (appeared originally in the Nib).

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

 

starting with love

I painted this watercolor on New Year’s Eve… which has never meant much to me but it’s always nice to have a break. I’ve been reconnecting with my sketchbook, which has been lovely.

Happy new year!

I had every intention of completing this drawing of our family dancing. Some of our best days are when the hubbahubba puts on a record and our daughter demands that we get up to dance (mostly to chaiyya chaiyya). Like many things this year, though, I did not have enough time. So I share it in its raw sketchy state as it still captures our joy.

It’s been a strange, exhausting year. Aside from sharing PASHMINA across the country, creatively the best art I shared were my free resistance coloring pages. Most of my other work I cannot share yet. In fact one of my projects, a picture book titled I WILL BE FIERCE was just announced.

For the first time in my years of working independently, I am taking 2 full weeks off for the holidays. Not working late on Christmas eve, not missing catching up with friends and family and taking a much needed mental break.

Thank you for all your support & shares. I hope you have happy, warm holidays.

 

stand for 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

my kitty love

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.

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!
