Wiggly lines, splashes of color spectrum spread onto some lean and lunatic characters with heartwarming smiles with brilliant short story lines tickling the funny bone of many across the nation (or more) and voila! What you get is an Alicia Souza original. For the 63rd episode of the weekly Gyaan Adda, NIDB invited Alicia Souza for a li’l talk about her journey as one of the most popular illustrators who have emerged out of Bangalore. To brush up on her, she is a ‘happiness illustrator’, who illustrates good little nothings about almost everything which pops up from about anywhere. Just like her illustrations, Alicia lit up our conference space with her giggly talk and her positive aura. Not to mention her obsession with her fluffy dogs which have proved to be an inspiration in many of her illustrations. Once a blushing shy girl, Alicia talks about how she overthrew her hitch to showcase her talent in front of billion eyes and now stands out to become one of her own intellectual property. Alicia Souza products are one of a kind and are a result of her zillion scribbles and a lot of paper toss.
