How the Camel got his Hump by Himmapaan How the Camel got his Hump by Himmapaan
The Djinn rolled himself up in his dust-cloak, and took a bearing across the desert, and he found the Camel most 'scruciatingly idle, looking at his own reflection in a pool of water.

'My long and bubbling friend,' said the Djinn, 'what's this I hear of your doing no work...?'


Illustration for How the Camel got his Hump, for Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories, published in a limited edition of 1,000 copies by The Folio Society, 2012.

Watercolour on (old) Fabriano Artistico cold pressed paper.

Camels judge you without a word. You capture that perfectly.

I never quite knew how to picture the Djinn, but I love how you have done so here! the layers of dusty robes are great, as is the camel's expression :D
