Rajiv Eipe received the Big Little Book Award, illustrator category, in 2020. Drawing and art has been his companion always. He has illustrated 22 books for children. Rajiv also runs an animation studio, Plankton Collective, in Bangalore. He enjoys reading and spending quiet time at home with his wife, 3 cats and a dog.
