Here is a little update on my Hindi alphabet project- I have drawn concept sketches for all but one letter and also have drawn final drawings for almost 12 out of 50 letters in the alphabet.
The theme that I chose to work with animals or the living world with a dash of cuteness and wordliness. I am digitally drawing the images so that I can create a power-point for my daughter later to show this on a screen.
Out of the fifty letters in the Hindi alphabet, four are known as khaali (empty) letters. These letters can be part of words but have no word beginning from them. In an online discussion my friend Suzi came up with the idea that these were probably the naughtiest of the letters and therefore could never be in the front of the line. I liked the thought but it wasw hard to represent so I came up with the idea of sad monsters taking these naughty letters away.
