hey it's ross. i changed my idea from the burning globe to something a bit more pointed. i've been watching with amusement and horror clips of this alaskan disaster. some golden quotes and facts:

"A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one though who would attribute it to being man-made."

Opposed protections for salmon from mining contamination. (Aug 2008)

Sue US government to stop listing polar bear as endangered. (Aug 2008)

We must encourage timber, mining, drilling, & fishing. (Jan 2008)

Feds shouldn't list beluga whales as endangered. (Aug 2007)

Convince the rest of the nation to open ANWR. (Jan 2007)

it goes on. needless to say, she isn't the most environmentally friendly candidate. the sketch above is the core idea... i'm debating on a minimal background or a wall full of the heads of endangered animals or some other amusing 'chicken fat.' any suggestions/comments appreciated.

Needs her glasses though.

I think this image is way cool and much better than your idea last week. I agree that her glasses are an important feature and enjoy the semi-insane look on her face. Will this be just a spot illustration or will there be background info?
