This has been one of my favorite personal pieces to work on. The illustration was inspired by the realization that one day books, actual paper books that you put on a bookshelf, and magazines with paper pages that you cherish your collection of ... might become a thing of the past. I love technology, but I must admit I am a tactile person and every time I get an email from one of my beloved magazine subscriptions asking me if I want to switch to the digital version I want to scream NO!
Hopefully there are more of you page turning lovers out there, who when it comes to time to it, will proudly wear a t-shirt saying "save the books" But lets hope that's no time too soon.
See how the illustration came together...
Thanks for stopping by!
