Illustration to stories, articles and jokes makes reading much more enjoyable. I have attempted to collect and present a few works of these great artists. I am sure the copyright of the works rests with the artists. So, please do not use the images for commercial/non-commercial purposes. I have put them up in my site only because I enjoyed their artistry so much. Those who are familiar with the works can recall happy memories of reading these magazines/books and the less familiar can get to know of our great artists' works and style.

Works of Vinu, Maniam, S.Rajam, Silpi, Gopulu, Varma, Dhanusu, Maya, Ramu, Baraskar, GK.Murthy, Umapathy, Maruti, Thaamarai, Kalpana, Maniam Selvan, Jayaraj, Padmavasan, Veda, JP are presented.
