Hi kids, guess what? The boogie cat calendars are ready for you. oooooh.
I worked very hard to keep the prices as low as I could make them. It really was the hardest thing to be trying to set a fair price in Indian Rupees for these while living in New York City. Everything from printing to mailing and even living here is so hopelessly expensive haha! But your favourite IG person (me!) has gone and sorta accomplished it! (Im going to be hand cutting each one myself, and packing them out to you and what not!)
So hit that link in bio, and see if you’d like a 2019 calendar!
It takes about 2 weeks to reach most cities, so order ahead. Unfortunately the payment link right now only works with India addresses right now, and while I figure out some alternatives, please DM or email if you want one, and I’ll try to figure out a temporary fix! Although, you cuties in India, please take advantage of this and I look forward to these calendars reaching you soon.
So excited, and hoping you’ll love them too!
Seemal Karthik writes something for everybody.
Fascinating and hilarious, the words she’ll write will capture every reader. There will be such power and magic in her words, but always with a clear and definite tone of humility so it always stays relatable and non-threatening. Jokes will be made, but of the harmless yet witty kind that will evoke a soft laugh, a giggle, an appreciative nod because she is, you see, a relatable, gentle, charming, interesting and most of all, someone you want to hear from. A definite crowdpleaser, 100% approval rating - something everybody can love!
Hello hello helloooo
I’ve been sending some newsletters out over the past few years, I try to send about three or four per year. Just before I started writing this next one, I asked myself to rethink what it was all about.
Well, think: my Instagram stories mixed with instagram descriptions but that still covers 30%. There’s more. More what? The plan is: more writing, more photo stories/secrets/shoot updates (ooh!), more travel data, stories from here and there, cat updates, more on everything that inspires my work etc etc. For the interested. I promise to try and keep it interesting.
I do share my favourite work on my website, and will continue to share some snippets on things out here on instagram. You won’t really miss the photos; wow, I’m really selling this very well, aren’t I? Oh, I also share some work and conversation with some fellow artists once in a while! And honestly, I love the direct channel of communication with you cuties who have subscribed. Bonus and my fav part is that because it’s via email, you can write back and I can hear more about you! (“psst Seemal, you do know that DMs exist and most people like to use that?” Yes, but I’m old and I like emails over pesky DMs. Sorry kids, I’m trying.) There’s also freebies once in a while to say thank you for your interest! Ah ha! Go get that link in bio, superstar!
PS: you can sample the newsletters at the link.
PPS: Going to send the next one out in just a few days.

Since Karthik and I met Esther at a @creativemorning talk early this year, we have had the pleasure of visiting Esther and Dikko’s studio twice and my fondness for them grows tenfold every time I see them. I am learning so much about the city, its history, new cultures, and getting to hear so many hilarious anecdotes from chatting with them, all the while eating great amounts of delicious scones, thanks to Esther.
They moved into a new studio a few months ago and I have had the opportunity to take some pictures of their old studio as well as the space they are in now. These are some photos of their old studio just days before their move. Definitely check out @purgatorypiepress for some incredible and engaging work in print. Their studio is truly such a fantastic place, Im thrilled to share these pictures.
