My Art on Cover Page!


Months back when made a pencil colour sketch of my favorite author, Mr.Ruskin Bond, I had not imagined that it will appear on the cover page of a book! 
The book 'Ruskin Bond’s World’ has been published by the Modern History Press, USA.  My sincere thanks go to Mr.Volkman of MHP.

I had mailed the original sketch to Mr.Bond and he was kind enough to send me a sweet autograph that I will always treasure! 

The sketch is there on my other blog, ‘Sketchosphere’ and can be seen here

You can check out the book here

  9. Congratulations. Happy you received his autograph. I have a question. Did the publishers ask your permission for using your sketch. If they did not ask, they are in serious violation of US laws.

    2. I was expecting this answer. Usually, US Publishers are very careful not to violate copyright/trade mark laws.
