Yali is a mythical creature that often feels like the dragon version of Tamil architecture that is engraved and carved in some of the oldest temples in Tamil Nadu. There are different types of Yali, the one with the elephant head, horse head, lion head, and so on. Whenever I visit the oldest temples of Tamilnadu, the statues of this being never cease to amaze me. So, I decided to illustrate this inspired by the one I saw in Padmanabhapuram Palace. It took a lot of time but was fun. I illustrated most of these illustrations in Illustrator and put them together in Indesign.
I am planning to bring in a few more Yali-inspired illustration works before my subscription ends. So check my “Designs & Illustrations” often.
