Leaving the Station - Contract Job

I was commissioned to draw this by my friend and former co-worker, Phillip Barry Powell, who was the head engineer at Fox 13 at the time. Unfortunately, the station was in the process of installing automated equipment so it was inevitable that many of us would eventually be replaced by the latest software. As a result, the idea behind this illustration was that the engine or the people that made this station run would be climbing aboard for a one way trip into the unknown. To enforce this, the monolithic SkyTower radar can be seen all the way in front of the sunset.
