Empires of Food

Empires of Food

This is one of many illustrations I created recently for a new online journal, www.empirestudies.org, a great site featuring various intellectual writers’ dissertations, thesis and reviews on global issues and topics in the Cycle of Empire, East and West.  Professor Tom Durwood, of the Valley Forge Military College, is the editor of the site. What a joy and challenge these illustrations were! This particular illustration is about food surplus, storage and trade.
