New illustration for Smithsonian Magazine

This was such a fun piece. It’s always cool to be able to do an illustration where you have to do some research into the story. Love this job. It’s also really cool when you find out that your illustration is in an issue of the magazine along side so many talented other illustrators. It’s always an interesting gig. This one was about an adventurous trip down the Colorado River with John Wesley Powell in 1869.
