Interactive Illustration is an attempt to fuse creative writing with visual design. The initial idea was to have an interesting artwork presented on screens, which users can interact with and get engaged in another set of interesting artworks. It started as an experiment taking inspiration from the text “City, Caught in Nets“ provided by my guide. Later it turned out as main project. The project is based on Mumbai, which depicts the life of people and their association with the Sea. It also covers the life of “Kolis - The Fishermen residing in coastal areas”, people and business from “Dharavi”. Illustrations are done with watercolours as a medium which are know for being versatile and flexible that can be used in different ways to achieve different results. These Illustrations were then processed to be used on web. Research have been done and many references were taken to get better understanding of the community and their daily routine. The website was made interactive with the help of GIFs, CSS animations and JavaScript. Sound is added to make it more immersive.
