Ecotrust Poster

This giant poster, which at full size is 24" x 36", was commissioned by Ecotrust, a really amazing organization dedicated to lobbying for better sustainable economic and environmental practices in the Pacific Northwest. They sent me a long list of jobs that would be found in a better, more sustainable economy. These jobs ranged from manual to technical and in all different kinds of terrain. The challenge became how to create a space that would allow me to demonstrate all these different jobs in their appropriate location- while also helping a viewer understand their benefit. 

It was a challenge drawing that large and also keeping the figures playful and clear. 
A few small details from the big image above. Thanks to Howard Silverman for the great project.
