As a child, Shashi Shetye used to draw huge crabs and sharks on the canvas of the Goa beach to impress his fishermen friends. This passion for art led him to illustrate several children’s books for more than twenty years. His hero is Mario Miranda, a Goan illustrator and cartoonist. Shashi loves conducting workshops to encourage children’s creativity, and his favourite pastime is to sketch a temple or church, surrounded by enthusiastic kids.
