Fossil fuels

©The Seattle Times
This is my most recent illustration for the Sunday opinion page of the Seattle Times. The article makes the point that, whether we like it or not, sources of energy that generate carbon dioxide, like gas or coal plants, aren't going away anytime soon. It's still too early for clean sources of energy (biofuels, windpower, etc) to take over. So, basically, we have to find ways to reduce carbon emissions as much as we can in the meantime. Brush and ink, charcoal pen and gouache.
Esta es mi ilustración más reciente para la página dominical de opinión del Seattle Times. El artículo argumenta que las fuentes de energía que producen dióxido de carbono, gas y carbón por ejemplo, no van a desaparecer tan pronto como querríamos. Fuentes de energía alternativas que no contaminan todavía están en su infancia y mientras tanto tenemos que buscar soluciones para reducir las emisiones de dióxido de carbono actuales. Pincel y tinta china, lápiz de charcoal y gouache.

  1. It is so nice seeing the sketches that led to your final drawing! Something about the pencil marks really excites me! Please show more of these!
