The Last Tree

the-last-treeA small boy lives in a concrete city without grass or trees. One day, he and a friend discover a tiny sapling growing behind a wall. He dreams about the tree growing huge and majestic. But the next day, the front page of the newspaper reads “247-Floor Luxury Condo! Construction to start this week.” He and his friend know they have to dig up the sapling and replant it in a safe place to make sure the last tree survives. This powerful environmental message is further conveyed by artwork rendered in charcoal, gravure ink, gouache, pencil, and digitally. mjw
