Mindy Kaling


I have to admit, I didn’t really watch The Office at all. I had a vague sense of knowledge that Mindy was on the show as Kelly Kapoor, but I really didn’t get into it like some hardcore fans I know. I also had no idea she was one of the show’s writers/directors/producers. Then, along came The Mindy Project. I was hooked. Love the character and all the situations that she gets herself into. Soo good!

I decided to do this illustration of Mindy after seeing some terrible E! (news) interview and her brilliant response.
