Green Humour is a series of cartoons, comics and illustrations on wild animals; wildlife and nature conservation, environment, sustainability and all things green. With over 350 cartoons and counting, Green Humour is possibly the largest collection of cartoons on wildlife and environment on the web. Cartoons and illustrations from Green Humour have appeared in Sanctuary Asia, Saevus, Current Conservation, Sustainuance, Tinkle Digest, National Geographic Traveller, the Biodiversity Expeditions magazine, Arastirmaci Cocuk Merkezi (a Turkish children's magazine), and periodically appear in the newspapers The Hindu BLink (fortnightly) and Mid-Day (weekly). Green Humour 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. Art from Green Humour has been used for several conservation campaigns and publications by organizations such as WWF, The Wildlife Trust of India, the Nature Conservation Foundation, BNHS, The Humane Society International, The Arunachal Pradesh State Forest Department, The Karnataka State Forest Department, Birdlife International, and the International Crane Foundation. 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. The cartoonist is a fellow of the International League of Conservation Writers, since November 2015.

About the cartoonist-

Notorious for rolling up into a ball like a pangolin to avoid answering the phone or meeting people, Rohan is a cartoonist, illustrator and animation designer 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 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 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 him sound like a big deal, why not?
