Summertime at Prithvi.... and Animagic !!

   Guess who! on the poster and ads for the 'Summertime at Prithvi' activities!!

       For those who are not aware, Prithvi Theatre is one of the most respected institutions for theatre in the country. Named after the legendary Prithviraj Kapoor ( one of my favourite actors.. amazing as one of my favourite characters in one of my favourite films of all time: Emperor Akbar in Mughal-e-Azam) who ran a theatre company by the same name from the 40s to the 60s. It was brought back to life by the late Jennifer Kendall and now driven by Sanjana Kapoor, has come to symbolise a theatre movement that is vibrant and alive in Mumbai. It organises a festival every year that is a "must attend" for theatre lovers.
   They also have workshops and plays and activities for children in the summer holidays.. and we illustrated a couple of posters for that. Well they were used last year, and this year too, they have made an appearance with some rearranging by our friends at Ka Designs ( for whom we did the posters. Very good work) The funniest part is this year's campaign is practically an Animagic visiting card!!!
    HOW? Like this.. among the  kids enjoying the  puppet show, I had drawn a lot of friends and teammates as kids (the original poster below)..obviously including Sumant, Gayatri & yours truly(right to left).. Now you know! 

The Animagic trio all over the city!!  ;) 
Quite in time for our 12th birthday ( 1st May) !! cheers!!
