A dentist turned wildlife cartoonist, Nagpur-born Rohan Chakravarty made this extraordinary choice of career when he encountered his proclivity towards the creative field. Today, on the Environment Day, his work is more important than ever. His website ‘Green Humour’ incorporates a series of cartoons, comics and illustrations on wild animals, wildlife and nature conservation, environment and sustainability. With over 400 cartoons and counting, Green Humour is possibly one of the largest collection of cartoons on wildlife and environment on the web.
Rohan has till now bagged a lot of recognition for his notable work in this genre. The cartoons and illustrations from Green Humour have appeared Sanctuary Asia, Saevus, Current Conservation, Sustenance, Tinkle Digest, National Geographic Traveller, the Biodiversity Expeditions magazine, Arastirmaci Cocuk Merkezi (a Turkish children's magazine), and periodically in the newspapers The Hindu BLink (fortnightly) and Mid-Day (weekly).
Giving a tribute to nature today, we’ve compiled some of his best works for your viewing pleasure:
