Last Man Standing III :: Outbreak

I recently submitted this piece for Concept.org's LMS3 competition. My time line was tight so I did quite a bit of it in the car on the way to Washington D.C. a couple weeks ago. I wanted to stay away from the obvious concepts like disease and zombies, so I chose the outbreak of lycanthropy (werewolf) and anger (shadow of approaching mob).

1. a sudden breaking out or occurrence; eruption: the outbreak of war.
2. a sudden and active manifestation: an outbreak of hives (or lycanthropy).
3. an outburst: an outbreak of temper.
4. an insurrection, revolt, or mutiny.
5. a public disturbance; riot.

From the early results coming in it doesn't look like I'll make it to the next round, but hey it was fun to illustrate regardless.

    Clever take on the word...outbreak!
    The shadowy figures aprroaching is a great element! It adds a whole new dimension the the work. And could we possibly be part of the angry mob!?!
