This project was formed in 2009 whilst attending art school.
The name PATOLA derives from the name of the silk cloth used when making saris. When illustrating these letters, I found my inspiration from various southern Asian fabrics. I was interested in the colour combinations and intricate patterns.
Although this project is now fairly old, it is usually prominent in my mind and I like to look back at it for reference.
I used the letters in my book Trickster Tales and perhaps will use them again at some point.
