Naughty Kittens
Hand drawn, pen and ink illustration that represents my art in the form of a loving animal - a cat


I focus on art inspired by Mandana - the traditional folk art of Rajasthan, which consists of drawings and illustrations made up of geometric shapes, animal figures, architecture, and mostly all that can make up our daily lives. This illustration represents childhood memories through my form of art and love for this animal.

Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

I chose a cat because it relates to my childhood memories as it was the most seen and found animal around us as a kid. This visual will also connect all the cat lovers together, as cats are wonderful pets.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Cats are universal animals, the great thing about cats are that they aren't restricted to any particular region or culture of the world, you can find them anywhere in the world, as well as people who love cats.

What story does your design tell?

This cat is made in a very visually appealing manner, represents the world and is made in the unique style of mandana.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

I am a mandana artist, and I creates illustrations that bring to life the culture, the creatures and the objects preserved in time, and I aim to share these with the world and keep this form of art alive.

Please make sure you have filled out your country of origin in your profile! It’s important that the regional Victorinox team understands the cultural background of your design.

Although I am an illustrator based in Toronto, the region my illustration style belongs to is Rajasthan - India, where I was born and brought up.
