GDG vol. 4 - Douglas Fir

(The New GDG book, Girls Drawin Girls Volume IV:
The Way Nature Made Her
, is now available for preorder!
Head over to the GDG blog to find out more and place your order.)

My pin-up piece for the next Girls Drawing Girls ( [link] ) book- we've got a plant theme this time around so I, a fan of conifers, grabbed the Douglas Fir.

I absolutely adore the National Park Service- Bryce Canyon specifically- so this project rapidly became an excuse to draw park rangers and the southwest. The choice to do it in the style of the inimitable WPA posters was an easy one- they're still some of the most compelling advertisements for the parks.

Saw this on the Comics Alliance site, and I really like your take on the WPA style posters. A must fave.

This is so neat! Very old poster style! I'm from around Lake Michigan and we always see the South Shore posters, and this reminds me of them a great deal! Lovely work!
