I am a comics-maker and a South Asian immigrant based in New York, originally from Calcutta, India.
As PHD Candidate at Stony Brook University, I am currently drawing my doctoral dissertation as a comic. it is an auto-ethnographic project about growing up in suburban India, homophobia in my hometown, living with chronic respiratory illness, and migrating to the US. In both my creative and academic work, I focus on how comics can be utilized by scholars and artists alike to amplify marginalized voices.
I work in a variety of genres and usually go for a semi comic, semi painterly style. Some of my favorite things to draw are cities and living spaces. I also like turning people into cartoons.
