Allen Mendonca’s Sentinel House
Allen Mendonca‘s novel ‘Sentinel House’ hits bookstores today . It’s the story of a (fictional) Indian newspaper house and how its characters ‘play a role’ in the evolution of India over the years. Allen, a former Indian Express and Times of India journalist , was a good friend. He passed away in his sleep in September this year. He was 49.
Here is an illustration I did for his book. It’s a graphic-novelish rendering of a scene in which Harivanshrai Kumar , the central character of the book , hears about the raid on his newspaper house :
Do note that ‘Sentinel House’ is NOT a graphic novel.
Meanwhile, I’ve been busy with other non-art stuff. But I’m working on another INGA comic. Look forward to a post next week.
