World Wildlife Fund magazine

DECEMBER 16, 2015
I had the pleasure of doing a commission for one of my favorite organizations, the World Wildlife Fund for an article on the Marshal Field Family and their ongoing support giving to some great causes : Tigers and Monarch butterflies.  Pentagram Austin contacted me to produce a double page spread for the magazine.  The Field family lives only 30 minutes from where I grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago on Lake Michigan.  
After gathering the reference, I began the final piece and sent this WIP to the client.  The only instructions I was given was to do a painting-lots of creative license here and they wanted the tiger to be incorporated into a tree across the spread.  The Marshal Field family sent a photo of their favorite oak tree from their back yard in Lake Forest, IL, so I decided to try to mimic the shape of their tree.
Here is the finished piece in the World Wildlife Magazine.  I want to subscribe to this magazine...it is not only one of the most beautifully printed and designed magazines around, but the content is fascinating and important!
