Happy Earth Day


a pretty rough attempt at digital painting here, take it easy on me! :)
I must imagine that mother earth is pretty sad these days, we've been mistreating her for over a hundred years now and yet we pretend that dedicating one day out of the year in her honour is going to solve our problems. I think we're doomed as a species, and I'm a pretty optimistic person, but I'm also no fool. As long as we keep buying into this system of capitalism and consumerism I think we can kiss her goodbye- but, hey, I don't want to be the party pooper here! Happy Birthday my dear friend.
