Brainwave. Issue 19. Paleo Planet

Although this issue came to the stands before the first week of June but the blog update of it got delayed due to the production week for the July Issue. The work has been running tight and it the middle of all the last minute chaos I ended up doing the cover for the June issue along with the layouts and spot illustrations for inside pages. The theme for it is crocodiles, dinosaurs and birds and the cover turned out to be alright for a last minute job. But, before everything else, here's a comic strip on why a few dinosaurs have been upset with what the paleontologist did to them.

Right-click on the image and select 'open link in new tab' for larger view.

Here are a couple of spot illustrations for an article done on Gustave, one of the largest crocodile alive right now. His size and voracious appetite has given him a cult status in the neighbouring areas of Burundi. 

And lastly, here's the cover.

The next issue is about visual effects used in movies. So gear up with 3D glasses, modelling clay, flip-books and persistence of vision. The kids of 80's and 90's are going to have a good time.


  1. Somesh.. I laughed so hard with this edition. LOL
    Loved the outraged Dino's


    1. Thanks David. You should try the Gustave story. Not sure if it's available for online purchase there but if it is, try it out -
