Man's place in the universe

How were your illustrations used? :
Book inside or spot illustration/s

How did you make this work:
This is the main illustration from a series of five for a book of John Muir's essays on nature. The text associated with this image is about the relationship between man and nature, proposing the idea of a nature indifferent to humans and potentially dangerous. I expressed the writer's point of view by keeping the danger in a rather abstract form to emphasise the distance and the mystery.
