Earth: Fragile Planet


Hey folks! Here's a small painting (5x 15in. ink and gouache on paper) I created for the Society of Illustrators. It's for the show Earth: Fragile Planet to raise awareness for issues affecting the environment. This is especially timely with the recent onslaught of natural disasters around the globe.

I wanted to test myself, and see how simple I could go with this one. I have a chronic tendency to over complicate my pictures, so this was a fun experiment!

The show is not until June 3rd though, so when more information is available I'll pass it along.

cheers!

The limited palette really enhances the impact of this image.
