We are thrilled that illustrator Sandhya Prabhat has signed up to work on forthcoming Namaste Is A Greeting with Candlewick Press.

Hilary Van Dusen at Candlewick Press has acquired Namaste is a Greeting, an exploration of Namaste through everyday observation and simple actions to honor the divine within all people. Prabhat is set to illustrate the title written by debut author Suma Subramaniam, to be published in Fall 2022, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Prabhat is well-known for her work on I Am Brown, published by Lantana in 2020, and has also worked with Penguin Random House and HarperCollins, amongst others. Currently on maternity leave, Namaste Is A Greeting will be Prabhat’s first project upon her return to work this summer.

Prabhat is an independent animator and illustrator from Chennai, working out of California, USA. She has illustrated children’s books, as well as animating for TV and movies, and designing for social media platforms.
