Indian Cartoon Gallery
Green Humour in association with The Indian Institute of Cartoonists presents “Wildlife the Toonie Way!”, an exhibition of Wildlife Caricatures.
Written and drawn by Rohan Chakravarty, Green Humour is a series of cartoons and comics on wild animals; wildlife and nature conservation, environment, sustainability and all things green. With over 200 cartoons and counting, Green Humour is possibly the largest collection of cartoons on wildlife and environment on the web. Green Humour appears in Sanctuary Asia, Saevus, Current Conservation, Sustainuance, Tigerlink, Tinkle Digest, the Biodiversity Expeditions magazine and The Hindu Business Line among others; and debuted on the international comics platform, ‘Gocomics’, in December 2013, making it the first series of cartoons and comic strips from India to be distributed internationally by a major syndicate. Cartoons from Green Humour have won the ‘Cartoon Contest on Climate Change – A People’s Perspective’ organized by the UNDP and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs in February 2012, and the Sanctuary Asia Young Naturalist Award in November 2012.
“Wildlife the Toonie Way” is a collection of caricatures of wild animals, and is Rohan’s attempt at creating a bank of fun illustrations of wildlife intended for publication, print and multimedia.
About Rohan Chakravarty
Notorious for rolling up into a ball like a pangolin to avoid answering the phone and meeting people, Rohan is a cartoonist and illustrator hailing from Nagpur, the “Tiger Capital of the World”. A memorable encounter with a beautiful tigress bathing in a Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary waterhole led him to give up a career in dentistry and take up drawing for wildlife and conservation. Other than Green Humour, he has done cartoons and illustrations for several other publication and organizations such as WWF, IDFC, Standard Chartered Bank, Titan, Istock and has served as an animation designer and illustrator for a Bangalore-based multimedia firm for three years. Other than the awards for Green Humour, Rohan has stood 2nd in UMO’s 6th International Cartoon Contest and The Time’s of India’s national level cartoon contest, ‘A Day in the Life of India’. He isn’t quite comfortable with writing about himself in the third person, but if it makes sound like a big deal, why not?
Watch wildlife in a fresh, new plumage!
