a letter from nidhi



first of all, i want to say thank you. thank you for sharing, posting, commenting on, purchasing and ultimately liking my work. sometimes i find it hard to believe how much love and support i’ve received through emails, messages, and comments in a mere three years. so thank you. truly!

i understand that when i complete and post an illustration online, its not mine anymore. i’ve given it to you. as i give it to you, though, i do ask that you take care of it. the question of how to care for, share and support my work has come up a lot recently. here are the best and “approved” ways of using and sharing my work:

1. sharing it on facebook, twitter, pinterest, tumblr, or any social media with proper credit and link (it should look like this: image by Nidhi Chanani,

2. using it as a personal profile photo with proper credit and link

3. sharing via email with proper credit and link

when someone shares my work without credit, it stinks! removing my name from my work is like erasing my identity. when someone prints or prints and distributes my work from the web, it is illegal. the only person who can print and distribute my work is me. i try to make my work accessible and affordable. and, honestly, the only way i can continue creating art is through your support.. and that’s all that i’ve ever wanted, to continue to create everyday and make people happy.

thank you, again, for your support… i’ve been out sick with the flu and i hope to be back sometime next week!
