How else would you describe a country that is home to over a billion people with different ethnicity, religion and language?
One artist’s pursuit in documenting the diversity of India in terms of its architecture, festivals, lifestyle, culture and the contrasting natural landscapes gave birth to the 100-days project or #100daysofincredibleindiabyinktrails.
Archana Pereira, an architect and an alumnus of University School of Design, Mysuru, took up the challenge in April and has been posting one illustration each day that gives an insight on the different facets of India.
Artworks embellished with pen strokes and a splash of colour, some illustrate places that the Bengaluru girl has already visited, and some that she intends to.
From the blue city of Jodhpur to the backwaters of Kerala, here are some of the hand-drawn illustrations from the 100 days project, which will give you major wanderlust feels:
More illustrations depicting the rest of India are to follow soon!
You can check the rest of Archana’s work on her Instagram handle. Her works are also up on Facebook that goes by the name Ink trails.
