In response to photos of the BP oil spill
Like many, I’ve been saddened and disgusted by the photos of wildlife dripping with oil from the exploded Deepwater Horizon oil rig. So I created a simple illustration — no, not a cartoon or silly poem or t-shirt design. An illustration of a pelican with a oil-black tear. I remembered the “Keep America Beautiful” PSA with the crying Indian (Iron Eyes Cody, of Italian descent, who was heavily involved in the Native American community). I thought the idea fit, so I updated it to the current disaster in the Gulf Coast.
