Earth Day 2020

CHICAGO - There is a Native legend that says the world is actually on the back of a giant turtle.

For Earth Day, I decided to play with that idea and incorporate all the elements that make up the natural world. Fire (red), water (green), air (blue), earth (brown), and mankind (tan).

Enjoy Earth Day and appreciate all of the world's elements together.
