Krishna Chavda is an illustrator who creates compelling illustrations and patterns for print, web, and textiles. She loves illustrating puns, food, architecture, birds, reptiles, insects, and animals in general. Her work calls upon the inner child and humorist inside us all; the one who dwells in a whimsical world where fish can paint and steaks have feelings. Close observations of the people, the conversations, the colors, and the life around Krishna serve as her inspirations, providing a spark for the next play-on-words illustration. Krishna also has a passion for surface design, creating patterns and prints for fabric, apparel, and home decor. Krishna’s patterns depict people, animals nature, and abstracted motifs, which can be found on a variety of apparel including yoga attire. Her palette is bright, playful, and her lines are brisk and wonky.
