Postcards for Spiti's Ecosphere
Time : April 2020

Ecosphere is a social enterprise in the Spiti Valley of the Himalayas, that works towards creating sustainable livelihoods for the local community. With a focus on nature and culture conservation, their initiatives range from eco-travel, health and organics to renewable energy. Because of the lockdown and their need for remote volunteers, I worked with them to create illustrations that could be printed on postcards, mugs and other souvenirs for their local shop. Currently being printed on postcards to start with, these mixed media illustrations capture the essence and spirit of the local culture there.
