In 1883 the largest ever-recorded eruption happened at Krakatoa in the South Seas. World-wide weather was affected and there were huge Tsunamis. The island of Krakatoa actually blew itself up, much of it sinking beneath the waves. Very dramatic indeed.

Krakatoa lies right between Sumatra and Java, homes to both Javan and Sumatran Rhinos. When Nature puts on this sort of show, there is astounding fallout for Wildlife. This was a case in point for Us, one species among many.

But We press on.

  1. Wow, are there any limits to your stylistic skills? I haven’t see ’em yet. I LOVE the FORMALITY of the violence depicted in this image — formal artistic control and harmony depicting natural chaos!


    • Delighted to hear from you. I’m glad you liked this illustration.
