SavetheBirds by Andoledius SavetheBirds by Andoledius
Editorial illustration for a project in class.

the article was about how pollution is killing bird populations, this is my interpretation :) Also, i took the liberties of cleaning it up in photoshop and adding some details.

Cut paper, acrylic, and photoshop

I love this work. So much so that I will be featuring it in my DA journal (links back to you, its a thumbnail) If you would prefer I  remove it, please let me know and I will do so right away. Thank you!

The message is powerful in its simplicity. And though the overall design seems basic at first glance, the composition is really well-balanced and intelligent. I love the contrast in color choices too. So good.

This is a really striking image. I like the layering of the colours in the clouds, and the way you used the birds' sizes to really bring the message home. That factory is kinda adorable, though. XD If only it wasn't spewing out toxic clouds of death.

I like! It's very WPA-ish. Kudos for using cut paper as well. It's something I always want to do but never get around to planning out.
