Earth Day

Did this for the April 2013 cover of the Progressive, but was waiting to post it until today.
Article was on climate activism.

I don't usually go into color in roughs, but I had a favorite and wanted to make sure it would work and sell it a bitat the same time. Luckily Nick, the AD on this agreed.

I wanted to add more layers to the image, but pulled back when I remembered Nick had told me to remember to accomodate the address label and bar code in the design.

I wish I would have had a bit more time on it to make some subtle changes to make the smoke curl more naturally around the face and fist, but making the deadline was most important.

This poster on the wall at Facebook HQ always makes me feel better when that happens.
