Hi, Kiddos!  Can you believe it’s May?  I am ready for some nice weather.  I’m excited about the artists we’re going to talk about this week.  They are twin brothers from Bangladesh, a country in Southeast Asia.  Southeast Asia is across the world from Springfield!  Their names are Manik and Ratan.  One of the things that I like the most about their artwork is that they draw characters that interact with regular, real life materials.  Here are some images below to show you their work.

I like how they make their character look like it is doing something with the real life object.  Tell me what you think about their work!  I miss you guys!
