The back cover of Sakwithi, first issue.
This new blogger Chithrakatha has been scanning and uploading covers (and backs) from older Sri Lankan magazines. They seem to be from the nineties and oughties and have some interesting drawing styles. The basic motif seems to be girl in hippy jeans and guy with shirt buttoned down, in lauw. There is also the village lass, mourning village lass, and varieties of cascading hair. I see these mags on the street (though few seem to be hand drawn anymore) but rarely pick them up. They’re always charming to see.
