I created this illustration for the Burnaway Fundraiser Event this Saturday the 8th from 7-11 at the Granite Room in Castleberry Hill. They’ve asked artists, writers, performers, and designers to explore the theme of Atlanta’s ongoing cycles and history of building, destruction, rebuilding, renewing, and expanding–from Sherman’s march to the sea to pre-Olympics urban renewal, from our short memories of the past to our long-running myths of the future–and what the city has lost and gained through these cycles.

I’ve always thought that Atlanta needed a giant monster. New York has King Kong and Tokyo has Godzilla and now Atlanta or in this case #ATLantis has the Kracken.
