After experimenting with cartooning, I wanted to try using my newfound line & wash cartoon style to create a more serious illustration.
This was inspired by reading about areas where so much depleted uranium ammunition has been used that military personnel only venture there in HAZMAT suits. The native children of course don't know about the danger, and play in such dangerous areas in blissful ignorance of the damage being done to them.
Although this was very rushed I think it might be my favourite of the cartoons I did.
