The Ivory Trade

I have just wrapped up work on this new illustration based around articles like this from NPR that have been cropping up over the past year. I have something of a soft spot for pachyderms- having spent hours in my past sketching mammoths and mastodons, along with my known hobby of armchair politics. As such, it is frustrating to hear about the rebound in poaching the last several years.

Any one who has seen my work knows that I rely a great deal on humor. For this piece that avenue just didn't seem appropriate. Regardless, it was fun stretching in to more editorial work, and I hope to do much more of it in the future.
