Lately, I've found myself reading a lot of articles and opinions on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It seems a lot of people want to play the blame game in the case of the spill. Is it BP's fault? Or Obama's? ...I guess I sort of think this spill is in some part everyone's fault. We all depend heavily on oil to run our cars among other things, and we don't seem to ask questions enough about how our oil is being supplied and what corners are being cut in the process. After seeing some pretty horrific images of seabirds affected by the spill, this phrase and image popped into my head... and I suppose that is how this sketch came to be.
Hoping to eventually rework this into a more finished illustration. Just have to find the time! Working full time, commuting and trying to do personal work on the side is tough. Check back next week though... I am in the midst of illustrating a desktop wallpaper for Canvas!
Hope everyone is enjoying the early weeks of Summer so far!
