Climate Emergency


Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
This piece illustrates an article on the Paris Climate Agreements, it was published in April 2021, just after the United States rejoined the Agreement. The article highlights the importance of the agreement and the need to take international action to stop climate change.

How was the illustration used:
Published on May 2021 in the Spanish national newspaper El Pais, Negocios supplement.

How did you make this work:
While the article highlights the good news and the importance of the Paris Climate Agreement, the illustration shows a not-so-joyful version of the issue. I wanted to show the urgency of cooling the planet and the difficulty of doing so. I made a few sketches around this idea and did the final image entirely on a vector computer program.
