Upamanyu Bhattacharya

Upamanyu Bhattacharya (@upamanyubhattacharya) is as talented as they come. With his instantly-recognisable character sketches, the young artist has carved a niche for himself when it comes to delightfully nostalgic illustrations and rendering pop culture icons. Some favourites? Nazar removal daadi,  Katie Bouman’s imaging of the black hole in 2019, Ganesha slyly grabbing a fistful of modak, and a child staring with wonder in Kumartuli.

Baljinder Kaur

Baljinder Kaur (@blahjinder) is a children’s illustrator and student at the Cambridge School of Art—and, if you ask us, Quentin Blake’s heir apparent.Her feed is a lovely mix of daily sketchbook entries, paired with wholesome drawings of the Sikh and Punjabi diaspora in England. Her depictions of the elderly particularly caught our eye, for their whimsy, and earnest captions.
