Dan made this piece in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010. It was called The “Fantastic, Plastic BP Forecast.”
There’s a bull in the oil well. He annotated this image that he took of the piece on top of an oil slick forecast.
From an email, dated August 12, 2010:
i have attached a photo of my ‘fantastic, plastic BP forecast’. you may remember that i was coloring the insides of plastic debris while idling in LT. as with most things i create, i don’t know if it is done yet. neither, i imagine, does BP.
