Concept by Karishma: Visual Content editor at Gaysi.

Artwork by Sanika (with inputs from Karishma): Sanika Phawde is a 20 year old Mumbai based illustrator who makes art to feel worthy of existence. A lot of her work explores themes of human discomfort in context of physical and mental spaces, and how uneasiness can be evoked, or expressed. She likes watching cartoons, collecting glass bottles, writing morbid poems and spends most of her time feeling confused about life and space. She once won a food challenge and would like to put it on her resume. In conclusion she would like to say, “Hi mom.”
