The Sun Sets on the British Empire… maybe not so much

SEPTEMBER 23, 2014

It has been about a month since I did this illustration for Christian Science Monitor. The vote hadn't taken place and Scotland was on the fence about remaining in the UK. 

 

I am proud of this image because it was completely my idea. It's pretty rare these days that things don't get put through the decision-by-committee mangler. Thank you, CSM..!

 

Also, fun for me that I used a photo of the public tennis court surface as the texture map. I had taken it six or seven years ago and stored it in my textures file. Perfect for that big round yellow ball of a sun.
