Happy Father's Day!
When I was a kid I found an old stained Continental Airlines pilot's tie in the gutter one June morning.Wanting to be an airplane pilot at the time I thought it was the coolest thing ever, so I gave it to my Dad for father's day.For a week or two after he wore the old raggedy thing to work. I was satisfied. Only later did I find out he would take it off and switch ties a few blocks away from home.

Got to do a fun job on one of my favorite subjects: green power.
I know it's a power hungry world and green power still seems like a fantasy, but here's to hope!

Art directed by Jürgen Mantzke who is also an illustrator. He had the interesting direction of trying to show the future by hinting at the past, which was fun to explore.
Smaller piece I did for inside.
Some color studies, they preferred the dark blue, better for the loads of typography.
Ironically immediately after I finished this job we went on a kayak/raft trip down the San Juan river (4 corners area) and found this petroglyph. There is something cool about sticking your nose right up to 4,000 year old artwork and no alarm going off.
I considered putting this one in the SI:EARTH Fragile Planet show, but went with my original entry.

I'm actually going to fly out for the show, hope to see you there! You won't miss me... in order to neutralize the carbon impact from the jet fuel I'll burn, I'm going to wear a loincloth I weave en route out of opaque plastic shopping bags.

And after the show I'll recycle the loincloth it by giving it to my petroglyph friend above.
