Verge of Extinction

Vector, Flat Design

The mosquito problem in Hawaii has been on going for decades and has caused a large amount of native Hawaiian birds to become displaced and go extinct.


The Kaua’i Forest Bird Recovery Project’s aim is to promote knowledge, appreciation and conservation of Kauai's native forest birds.


This illustration depicts the Akikiki, Akekee, and I’iwi struggling to survive in a forest taken over by mosquitos and pigs. The trees in the distance make out the word “EXTINCT” as a foreshadowing of what’s to come without change.

Reusable character assets are a huge and wonderful part of vector designs. Here, I separated some of the objects and characters from this illustration to show you the simple details put in place.
