I was asked to create a full-page illustration behind the headline "Force of Nature" that incorporated elements of a lush web of interconnected life...plants, animals, flowers, mushrooms, marine life; for a feature story on the great (and difficult) work of a Fletcher grad who is head of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity and travels the world to make the case for the environment.
The illustration was inspired by my pattern "undergrowth". I was given the layout with the headline and I was asked to create a rich illustration with many different plants and animals represented. I placed insects and small lichens, and mushrooms at the center to highlight that all life depends on the smallest creatures. They may seem unimportant but are the key to a stable ecosystem.
