Arjun L Sen replied:

I haven't actually done any artwork since 1st May. I've got involved in homeless dog rescue in Serbia and Bosnia. Writing letters, petitions, that kind of thing. Along with full time work I've got no energy left for art. I've put on some photos with write-ups, though. :)

Thanks, Heidi! :))

The way the human race is going, we won't need a Roc to destroy us, we are doing that fine ourselves. Sigh. But I've always enjoyed the stories of the gods, and of Roc and his counterparts, Your interpretation here is beautifully rendered, your attention to detail is marvelous. Great work, my friend. vf

"The Roc" looks awesome Arjun! (and I don't often use that word!) What power and expression comes out of your marvelous finger painting style! The write- up was completely devastating to read ! And full of facts and legends that I know nothing about.Thank you for sharing so much important detail . I think the illustration is tremendous.v/f

Arjun L Sen replied:

Thanks, Jane. I'm so glad you liked this picture. My pictures tend towards the ominous and are full of trouble even though I see how beautiful the world also is and struggle to hold on to that, as we all do through art. I digress so forgive me, but it I may say it here, I am nearly at the end of 'Star Pilgrim.' It is a mind-blowing book. It's fair to say that I have read no other book of fiction that tackles all the main themes that have dogged me since I was a teenager - and still do. Remarkable. It is no ordinary book, and though it has the ingredients of an exciting and entertaining adventure, it is no mere entertainment. Will respond when I have finished and given it due thought. Not here, of course...

Your world view of the future is symbolized so perfectly in this awe inspiring Roc. Thank you for your powerful art and for your writing which carries me deep into my own philosophical speculations.

Arjun L Sen replied:

Thanks, Nancy. My pictures are sometimes a bit ominous but I paint them because despite everything there is always hope. Otherwise, why bother? The world is terrible and beautiful all at once, made infinitely more terrible by the terrible things we humans have done and are doing. Yet, even here, there is love and kindness and the finest of feelings. It's a challenge to hold on to the beauty of this world and the goodness that is here despite the wreckage and despair without turning away from it. I can't think of any other way to get to grips with it except through art. :)
