Here’s a note from Sanghamitra Dasgupta
I am a comic artist with 26 years of cartoon sketching. I am also innovative and highly creative who is good at thinking out of a box when it comes to solving the problem. Mac is my very first book as an author. As a child I always very fond of ghost stories,so I thought to use my imagination and make a cute little ghost for the kids,and here it is,the “Mac” and the second book- “The art of Sanghamitra Dasgupta” it is a book of my most favorite concept arts which I did. After that, I launched an activity and coloring book and rhyming book for kids.
