Ishaan & Ayeshe

This talented husband-wife duo run 211Studio, where they draw cartoons that go on the cover page of leading newspapers, design brands and make incredibly fun children's books.

We sat down with them and talked about how they work, how they come up with new ideas and what they do when they run out of them.

“Stories should be for everyone. The best stories transcend bounds and cater to all ages. Hayao Miyazaki is an example that pops into my head immediately.”

“Being relaxed and calm is a very important part of our creative process. We would love to work close to nature. Somewhere calm. Ideally.”

Downtime with Ishaan and Ayeshe.
