Spreefirit is the brain child of Vijaya Aswani, an illustrator hailing from the hot dessert of dreams, she calls Muscat. She has been illustrating for a few years now, spending hours with her little sketchbook. It was only 3 months ago, that she felt the need to create something larger than life. She got to work by starting with a wall mural and went on to organise a hugely successful project called #everypersoninbangalorecity, a campaign where people shared their stories while their she captured their essence in a quirky sketch. The campaign was really well received, no matter how tiny the canvas was, it made people feel big. While searching for something larger than life, she learnt that often the smallest attempt to make someone’s day – even a little anecdote or a motivating love note, made the biggest difference and left a meaningful impact.
Hit Vijaya up on Dysco for a customised portrait for you or a friend, your own illustrated wedding card, or to discuss her new idea for a children’s book!
