Making Friends in Bangalore

With a sketchbook in India

What does an illustrator do when he is in India? Correct, he draws. Anywhere, anytime.

Whenever I was sitting in the streets of Bangalore (South India) with my sketchbook, I was surrounded by numerous curious spectators looking over my shoulder and asking me what I was doing. They were telling me about their lives and work and took me around to show me their crazy city. The book reports all the exciting and funny encounters with the residents of the city and the adventures I experienced with them. Amongst others it tells stories of a rickshaw driver with no sense of orientation, a maniac portrait artist, a three day long wedding and the dangerous holes in the streets of India.

144 pages, soft cover with red colour cut, published by Büchergilde Gutenberg.


Sadly, the book is sold out at the moment. But most like it will be re-published in 2018. The French version is available at Cambourakis.
