Illustrations in Tamil publications

April 2010 - latest update December 2011

Illustrations to stories, articles and jokes makes reading much more enjoyable. In this section I have attempted to collect and present a few works of these great artists. I am sure the copyright of the works rests with the artists. So, please do not use the images for commercial/non-commercial purposes. I have put them up in my site only because I enjoyed their artistry so much. Those who are familair with the works can recall happy memories of reading these magazines/books and the less familiar can get to know of our great artists' works and style.

I am just sharing low res images so we can enjoy the work of these great artists. I am not in direct contact with any of the artists and do not sell the prints or original paintings.
