Borin Van Loon: Acid rain 1
Acid Rain
(Pen, wash, watercolour dyes, Letratone)

This was created as an entry for a Greenpeace-sponsored illustration competition. Unfortunately, that meant it never happened and the original was never returned. The rainbowed scalpels slicing through the upper atmosphere past idealised clouds struck me as a telling image - particularly given my involvement in the Weather book project. In Brecht's play, 'The Caucasian Chalk Circle', one of the characters states that the only thing which pleases him more than a clear blue sky is a thunderbolt from a clear blue sky. The piece looks rather striking (and more ominous) when reversed out:
