Last Week's Boise Weekly Illustration
This is the latest BW illustration. The article dealt with the reduction of habitat of the sage grouse and pygmy rabbit due to energy concerns. I did this one relatively quickly (two days, technical difficulties notwithstanding). I like the perspective, the contrast, the depth of field, and the suggestion of motion. I don't like the design of the robot or the heavy outlines. The outlines are fallout from years of political cartooning. I think they buttonhole the piece stylistically and make it read as two dimensional.
