This City Artist Is Out To Sketch Everyone In Town And You Could Be On Her List Too

Shortcut

Search for #EveryPersonInBangaloreCity on Instagram and you’ll come across Spreefirit’s series of charming portraits of interesting people that she’s met in the city. And now you can get stickers, laptop sleeves, and calendars with adorable illustrations too!

What Makes It Awesome

Vijaya Aswani , armed with a sketchbook and a pouch full of drawing pens, decided to go to cafes around the city and do Every Person In Bangalore City — a personal project where Vijaya does fun, caricatures of people she meets. Vijaya’s project is a form of busking and when she’s not sketching people, she’s either working on some freelance project that ranges from doing portraits to wedding invites and wall art to branding.  

She's branched out into merchandising her artwork into fun relateable comics, illustrations and cards. The cards (INR 60) for difficult relationships featuring a pineapple and a cacti features 'prickly' banter that you expect with close friends, or siblings even. The calendar (INR 450) follows a particular theme, 2019's theme being exclusivity and features a different and diverse set of characters every month. They also have a set of funky bandannas for INR 400. 

Other accessories like stationery, laptop sleeves, notebooks and the like are in the works soon. If it's the portrait you seek, you'll find her doodling away at a cafe in Koramangala. 

Pro-Tip

While Vijaya doesn’t have any set charges for you to get sketched, you are more than welcome to ‘pay what you like’.
