This is the sketch for one of the eight new pieces in my Amazon Women series I've been working on while a Resident at the New York League of Art Students Vytlacil Campus. Her name is Embera and she looks on in disbelief at hectares of razed jungle she once called her home. In the distance atop a hill she is watched by the demon of industry mounted proudly upon his Nelore bull. Seven football fields of rainforest have been burnt today so the world may have its burger. There has got to be some other way.
