Project: The Disappearing Spotted Owl 

Client : Earth Island Journal
Art Direction : Jason Mark
Assignment :  Illustration of the "Disappearing" Spotted Owl

Another great commission from Jason Mark at Earth Island Journal. This time I got to illustrate this sweet, but endangered Spotted Owl. Because of domino-effect environmental issues, this species is being pushed out of it's native Pacific Northwest Habitat by his cousin, the barred owl. I illustrated the owl in his natural habitat, but created negative space where his environment overlaps with his body.
