I had such a great time illustrating, hand-lettering and designing the book “What a Waste: Where Does Garbage Go?” for the fine folks at Annick Press. The topic can be a little heavy and dismal, so they wanted fun illustrations that would keep it feeling hopeful. The book is full of interesting trashy tidbits, and the subject matter provided ample opportunity to sneak in some of my signature rats & crows.
Designing the book as well as illustrating it made for an immersive and wholly satisfying project. Below are a few spreads from the book.
