Notorious for rolling up into a ball like a pangolin to avoid answering the phone or meeting people, Rohan is a cartoonist and illustrator hailing from Nagpur. 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. His cartoon series Green Humour is the first series of cartoons and comic strips from India to be distributed internationally, and won awards from the UNDP, Sanctuary Asia and WWF International among others. Other than Green Humour, he has done cartoons and illustrations for several other publications and organizations such as WWF, Nat Geo Traveller, IDFC, Standard Chartered Bank, Titan, Istock, and has served as an animation designer and illustrator for a Bangalore-based multimedia firm. Other than the awards for Green Humour, Rohan stood 2nd in UMO’s 6th International Cartoon Contest and The Times of India’s national level cartoon contest, ‘A Day in the Life of India’.
