Detroit and Cherry 2: Harsho!

Harsho Mohan Chattoraj is a giant among illustrators in India.

I am honored that he has agreed to do the cover, and possibly more, for Detroit and Cherry, the book project I am now finalizing.

For now, a couple of samples of Harsho's work, and an excerpt from his resume.

Examples of Harsho's techniques and projects can be found here.

As for Detroit and Cherry, it is shaping up to be a novella that is a mix of i ate tiong bahru with Kiss of the Spider Woman and a snapshot of May 7, 2020. The dynamics of the times we live in are also shaping the story. Stay safe, everyone.
