Peter Fasolino – Louisiana Oil-Slick Blues

LOUISIANA OIL SLICK BLUES – I was hired by Ducks Unlimited Conservation Group to illustrate this piece for the Mississippi convention focusing on the response to the oil spill, specifically surrounding wetlands and waterfowl science, wetlands restoration and public policy.


Peter Fasolino's illustrations cover the spectrum of Children's Books, Editorial and Advertising art as well as Caricature. Peter lives and works in New York City and, when not illustrating, spends his time pondering what part of the brain is responsible for compelling one to be an illustrator. The same part, perhaps, that persuades one to believe in the possibility of lasting peace in the Middle East, a Beatles reunion with the original members, O.J. Simpson's innocence, tolerable Adam Sandler movies, keeping the porchlight on for Jimmy Hoffa's return, health insurance for every American and a high six figure yearly salary due to buyers of Illustration who know good art when they see it.

  1. Awesome Pete! I do feel terribly for the quarter million birds that have perished since the spill, and the billion more on route during their migration.
    Nice job!
