In the name of progress

In the name of progress

Contribution to The Exquisite Collective by Gelrev Ongbico, from the Philippines.
“My country is experiencing a good and fast economic growth under the new administration and while it is good news, I know that, in the name
of progress, forests sometimes have to be sacrificed to make way for residential areas and business centers.

The illustration portrays nature, being trapped by urban development. The problem of course is when nature strikes back, then us humans can do nothing. We should realize that humans are part of this Earth; we are not above anything else, even if we’ve made massive advancement since the beginning of time.”
