Hello! My name is Saachi Singh.
I’m 27 years old, from New Delhi, India. I spent the first ten years of my life attending a day school in the city, and then a remote school in the hills, and then four years in the best city in the world- Edinburgh- and then a year in a tiny little harbour town called Falmouth in Cornwall, on the southernmost tip of the UK.
At Edinburgh University I studied English literature and graduated with a First Class, including a First in my final year dissertation, and in some of my favourite courses; the Making of Modern Fantasy, Film Studies, Early Modern Theatre, Shakespeare Adapted, Performance Studies, Victorian Transatlanticism, and Mystery and Horror. I also took external modules in Ancient History, Classical (Greek and Roman) Literature, History of Art, and Social Anthropology. (But my favourite work of literature will always be Harry Potter).
At Falmouth University I studied for an MA in Illustration, graduating with merit, having worked on a series of projects that involved writing and illustrating my own fictional travel journal, and illustrating the short stories of Edgar Allen Poe. I’ve since worked as a storyboard artist both as part of a leading commercial digital studio for animated television, and as a freelancer for commercial scripts and advertisements. I’ve also worked for screenwriter Nikhil Arora and drawn concept art and posters for his supernatural anthology TV series pitch.
In my spare time I’m also working on an original children’s story about a naughty baby monkey called Baby Monkey, pictured below with his girlfriend:
