Section for Tree Calendar by Himmapaan Section for Tree Calendar by Himmapaan
Promotional work for my agent. Part of a tree calendar which is being produced for this year and for 2014. Each of the artists does a section for their given month. All the sections join together to form one large tree.

I was given the month of June (of all ironies). I'm afraid I haven't given my branch an abundance of leaves, though it was approved thus in the rough stage, so there we are.

The dinosaur (ahem) is Urocissa erythrorhyncha; or red-billed blue magpie.

Sepia ink, sepia powder, watercolour and a little gouache on Arches hot pressed, 21 x 8.5cm. The full view is larger than the original. Here is a detail of the magpie.

I love the color contrast. Blue is my favorite color, and I like any art where the blue really pops out like this. Beautiful!

There isn't one online, I'm afraid. It's an actual calendar which is sent out by my agent as a promotional piece. But I can try and take a picture of it at some point.

Simply gorgeous. I have to say that one of the things I love most about your illustrations is not just your level of detail, but the detail in conjunction with your accuracy with the real creatures, like this dinosaur (hehe). I'm sure you know how rare that is, but I just wanted to say that it is noticed and appreciated as well. :)

I love the intricacy of your art, and I think I love it the most when the picture is so simple. Amazing use of colour!

oh this is stunning :D beautiful detail on the bark, and the bird is so crisp and exotic next to the familiar looking tre. beautiful. I saw a copy of your illustrated Sense and Sensibility in the book shop the other week and was absolutely enamoured of it - i felt superbly proud to know you, or at least, know OF you! ;)

So beautiful... the tree looks like it's gently cupping the magpie in its gnarled hands. All those rough pockmarks and jaggedy edges contrast beautifully with the slender and soft shapes of the bird. And the concept of the calendar is really cool!

That's a pretty cool idea. Why is June ironic?

I think it's fantastic, if yes, a bit bare for June (at least in my part of the world). And of course I'd never fault your choice of dinosaur. ;)

Have I ever struck you as a summery person, metaphorically speaking? ;) (Though I'm not literally a summer child either. My birthday is later this month.)

I don't think it mattered, really, whether we made our branches reflective of our given month or not. Though it could have been extra special if we did, I suppose...

I guess I think of you as an artist for all seasons ;) You've a delicate hand with pastels, which I associate with spring. A lot of your scenes seem to have autumn lighting. The muted colors and tiny details work well for the crispmess of winter. And dinosaurs are rather timeless :D

Happy birthday then, I hope the next year is kinder to you!

Ah, that's so kind of you. Thank you.

I was just thinking more in terms of disposition. It tends towards autumnal melancholy or outright wintry gloom. ^^;

Oh, please do not wish me that yet. There's still over ten days to go. I wish to delay it for as long as possible...

That would be a bit pot and kettle in my case, so I'd not presume ;)
