I'm putting together a series of illustrations based on photographs from a trip down the west coast of America. Anyway, my original idea was to frame the photographs using the illustrations, like so;
(badly photo shopped, but you hopefully get the idea; the blend to black would be done more subtly, and there'd be no flipping)
However, for this particular illustration I'm not sure it works, so I was thinking of just framing them together, like so.
What do you guys think? And what the hell should I put in the smoke frame? The story is that we nearly ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere, Utah.
