Final collage commission for theLos Angeles Times. This art ran in yesterdays 12-07-08 Op-Ed section. The above color illustration is the raw version before I digitally tweaked it for submission. We decided to simplify my sketch in the lower right corner and have the focal point be primarily W's boots in the foreground amidst the desolate wild lands . . . driving home the point of how we are selling the soul of the country by opening these areas to oil and gas exploration.
