This illustration is part of a series celebrating our drivers. We know driving isn't easy, so we wanted to show our drivers appreciation in an unconventional way – tying their distance-traveled to distances in nature. In this case, the driver has travelled the distance of a monarch butterfly's migration.
As someone who is fascinated by the life cycle and metamorphosis of butterflies, I was only too happy to work on this piece. Unsurprisingly, my favorite feature of the brightly-colored arthropod was also the most challenging to draw. Since the Monarch butterfly’s distinctive orange and black veining is anything but geometric, I spent a good amount of time simplifying the pattern to fit within our more structural style while staying true to its original form.
