Inspiration: Black and Black Illustrations

07.28.11

These illustrations from Bill Mayer are brooding and dark yet surprisingly sophisticated. He created them for General Orders No. 9 which provides a history of the state of Georgia, but not in any normal textbook fashion. Instead it takes an impressionistic and poetic approach to span the time when Europeans first discovered the land that was then inhabited by Indians to the present day.
