Emily Graslie and The Brain Scoop are leaving Missoula, Montana and moving to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois. This is a huge accomplishment for Emily and for the show, so I figured that it merited a bit of fan art. I decided to go for a bit of a comic book style with this one. Line art, flattened color, full color, and final (with additional value-based shading) versions are shown.
Congratulations, Emily! You’ve landed your dream job! I honestly cannot think of a better match than you and the Field Museum. With your passion and enthusiasm for what you do, they are as lucky to have you as you are to have them. I’m looking forward to hearing about your adventures there.
I know that you’re leaving a lot behind to follow this dream, but I’m sure that Missoula will be in your heart for years and years to come.
