Lee Bowen - Fairytale/Environmental Sketches

Story: Jack and the Beanstalk
Environmental Issue: Deforestation/ Illegal Logging

The original story had no moral lesson and showed Jack as a bad "'hero' gaining the sympathy of a man's wife, hiding in his house, robbing, and finally killing him." I wanted to highlight the greed of the character, Jack, who in this version is a logger, and the sorrow of the singing harp (who in the original story also did not want to be stolen from the giant) as she sees the destruction Jack has caused with his greed. The point of the image is to criticize the act of taking too much from the land.
