Alicia Souza – Chumbak’s Illustrator

with one comment

This week we’d like to introduce Alicia Souza – the artist that helps bring Chumbak creations to life.  Alicia’s whacky and fun style has won over many hearts and she has shared some insights into her creative process with us.

What inspires you?
“Everything and nothing. I guess sitting alone in a room can get me thinking about the quirkiest things to do, yet sometimes going out, even for just a drive, can show you things you’ve not seen before!”

Who is YOUR favorite illustrator?
“Ohh, well, I have many favourites but I’ve always had a soft corner for Quentin Blake. Something about his loose lines and colour makes his pictures look like an organised mess”

What Chumbak project did you have the most fun doing?
“Hands down, Bobby the bobble-head. I’ve never thought I would get an opportunity to do something in 3-D so soon! I was stoked that it came out perfectly and such a relief too. I’ve never been so satisfied. ”

What medium do you like to draw on besides paper?
“People, when they are not looking. And slings. ” (Hehe..funny girl that Alicia…vot? )

What do you like to do other than your art and Chumbak?
“Make coffee, drink coffee, write letters, and dodge cows on the streets. And I have an extensive collection of photos of my dog, so unconsciously, I believe I like taking photos of my dog.”

Here are some ‘illustrations’ that have become Chumbak bestsellers:

Thanks Alicia!  That was super fun.

Packaging talks – Chumbak

leave a comment »

A customer recently wrote in saying he was pleasantly surprised at the quality and packaging of the Chumbak items he had purchased.  This made us realize that the pictures were not doing this uber-fun brand justice.  So, here is a deeper look at the packaging and a sample magnet to give you a better sense of the product line.

Lets start with the fun Ganesha magnet with the packaging intact:

Cool.. right? But hold on, unlike most products, you can enjoy the packaging too…take a close look at the elaborate detail put together on the little card that makes up the background.  We are saving this one to color in as a fun kids activity on a rainy day:

And finally, to give you some perspective on the heft and dimension of the magnet itself:

Chumbak was founded by Shubhra Chadda out of a love for India and travel .  Today, the product line includes magnets, keychains, charms and more.
