"Sky-lid Opens" - in issue 11
by Charbak Dipta

I am an Indian illustrator,cartoonist and graphic story teller based in New Delhi.Academically I have an M.A. in Philosophy and a self taught artist.I have worked in various newspapers,magazines as a political cartoonist.Currently I am the art director in a Delhi based international illustration agency.I am also a trained Hindustani classical singer and Pianist.

About work: This is a fantasy illustration.If you stand in a large field and look above,the sky would look like inside of a sphere.I imagine the sky above us is like a lid.The earth are like a pan on which the lid is kept. One day the lid opens.And there is another world behind it.I tried to capture this concept in this artwork.

"The Alien Woodcutter" - in issue 10
by Charbak Dipta
"The Alien Woodcutter" from the series "Indian Aliens". This series is about a parallel alien world in some distant planet somewhere in the space. In the series it is shown that how these aliens are mimicking human cultures, more specifically Indian culture. They are all aliens yet Indian in a queer way. The idea came from Plato’s theory of Ideas which says there are ideas of everything that are eternal. The earthly things are only copy of those ideas. Similarly I imagined somewhere in the universe there is an Alien world parallel to this human world. Everything we do or happens in this world is just a copy of that Alien world.
