It’s all Maya!

November 22, 2010 § 1 Comment

Post the success of Maya the Indian princess, Nick Jr. commissioned me to do another animated spot – and I created Happy Holi Maya! in 2005. Happy Holi Maya aired on Nick Jr. in May 2005. Besides being on TV and online, it screened at a number of film festivals worldwide, including the  Chicago International Children’s Film Festival and BAMKids, NYC.

The idea took shape after I went through my third cold white winter in NYC, and longed for spring colors and summer warmth. (In India, we welcome Spring by celebrating the festival of Holi, where kids and adults alike, frolic and throw colored water on each other).

    Thank You for creating the Maya series for us! My little niece is of Indian descent and also named Maya. I only wish there was some way I could give her a “Maya” book for her birthday tomorrow. Alas, maybe in the future. We’re looking forward to seeing what other creations you have in store.
