Vartika + Vatsala
We have to end our day with an episode of X-Files, it is like our bedtime story.
We like watching movies a lot - we have these horror movie nights with our friends.
Photographing our friends, drawing together and spending a day out in a garden, tree spotting.
We basically start by deciding the mood for the comic. Vatsala puts down her stream of thoughts, and I at the same time think of the visuals, so both, the narration/story + visuals develop at the same time.
Vatsala: We trust each other so it makes it a lot easier to accept each other's vision as well as to give an honest opinion and criticism. I think we can be quite harsh to each other at times, but then it helps us make something that we both love and care for.
Currently, we are working on a series called Ilya, its about this girl and her thoughts.
You can read the first one here.
Can you read each others minds?
We guess we can, we like to call it twin telepathy to feel special, but we think it's because we spend so much time together. Often, we have the same music playing inside our heads too. We sometimes have similar dreams. It's like our subconscious is connected in some weird way.
