What if you get an opportunity to cash in all those doodles you love to draw and comic strips you loved to create?

How it started:
Neha, 25 was pursuing C.A when she thought about trying her hands on uploading her doodles on social media. One thing led to another and today she is a full time doodle artist!
Neha says, the secret behind her fascinating doodles is her hyperactive imagination. She constructs the scenarios through real life events and illustrates them into a comic.
She randomly kept posting these doodles on social media and later one of her works got selected by The Telegraph- Kolkata and then there was no stopping!
Her comic and doodles were so enthralling that her following accelerated from 10 to 1 lac in no time.

Besides, she has setup an online store for her doodles with the website www.nehadoodles.com. Also, her work is available on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

She proved herself, even though it was difficult for her to convince the society that illustration and doodling could be a career. She made thousands realize that their last page random scribbling can surely make them earn a living!
Neha is looking forward to publish long comics which would represent a story. Apart from this, she is currently working on comic series for GOFRO- a travel curation service, StyleDotMe- a fashion app.
