California Brown Pelican Illustration
For this project, we were tasked to choose an endangered animal from our homes to be our modeling example for a three part project. In this second part of the project, we were tasked to create a two dimensional translation of the animal. We were also asked to highlight the reason as to why the animal is endangered through the text we placed on the illustration and elements of the illustration itself.
When creating my illustration, I went through multiple iterations in terms of both the animal and the environment that it was placed in. The California Brown Pelican was endangered due to the presence of DDT in the ocean which poisoned the Pelican's food supply.
