Backbone of the Economy

American Gas: Backbone of the Economy

I was asked by American Gas magazine to create a cover image highlighting the importance of small/midsized businesses to the US economy.

Initial thoughts revolved around contrasting the physical sizes of buildings - a small lego style building set against the backdrop of huge corporate world structures. Additionally, the copy included the phrase 'backbone of the economy' which sparked another idea and this was the one that ended up being carried through to finished art.
