Divya's self-portrait (from pupae.com)

Divya Srinivasan (born November 30, 1973) is an acclaimed and multi-talented artist, animator and photographer who has been collaborating with They Might Be Giants on various projects since 2004.

Her first music videos for the band were for the Here Come the ABCs DVD, for which she animated five videos throughout the summer of 2004; "Go For G!", "A To Z", "Letter/Not A Letter", "Alphabet Lost And Found", and "A To Z (Type B)". The album was eventually released in February 2005. Later that year, she animated two videos for the Venue Songs DVD, those being "Los Angeles" and "Damn Good Times".

Continuing her partnership with TMBG, in early 2007, Divya created a video for the song "High Five!" for the album Here Come the 123s, although the album would not be released until nearly a year later due to the band's scheduling conflicts. An illustration from said video is featured prominently on the cover artwork of the album.

In late 2008, Divya also created videos for "Roy G. Biv," "Speed And Velocity" and "The Bloodmobile" for TMBG's album Here Comes Science.

In a 2013 interview with the Austin Chronicle, Divya stated that she believes "Weird Al" Yankovic discovered her through her work with They Might Be Giants, leading her to animate the 2009 music video for his song, "Skipper Dan."
