STORY BEHIND THE BOOK
Reesham Shahab Tirtho is a renowned artist. This year, he has showcased his journey as a father in his illustrated book, Babuibela. When Tirtho's daughter was born, he started portraying her everyday activities in humorous drawings and illustrations. "New parents inspired me to turn my sketches into a book, as they could relate to the drawings," explains the artist. Tirtho doodled on his sketchbook with a pen and created the series of drawings for the book, which was released at The Ekushey Boi Mela. Tirtho's daughter, Audri, is now twenty months old. "When she grows up, these doodles will help her understand the journey we went through and they will bring back her childhood memories," he shares.
