Unpleasant Waters

Seven Days newspaper commission Michael Tonn for an illustration on the Vermont Lakes.

Seven Days newspaper commission Michael Tonn for an illustration on the Vermont Lakes.

Michael has conveyed the Vermont lakes and rivers fouled by sewage run off - he wanted to show the disgusting origin of the waste, without over stating the obvious. He says "Vermont swimming holes still remain beautiful, but the reality of the situation is lingering in the background, plain as day. Thus I created an illustration that is pleasing but in reality disgusting."
