Why did you make this work:
There are lives in every part of the ocean, from the beaches to the deepest ocean floor. Ironically, ocean and plastic wastes are inseparable. Plastic wastes are covering and destroying the ocean, but most people are not alert to this situation. I felt we need to consider and respect more about the ocean full of plastic and life. This work was created to make viewers have respect for the ocean.

How was the illustration used:
This illustration was made and used as an assignment for a college class. I printed and bound the work by myself, and it was shared with classmates, and used to critique each other's work.

How did you make this work:
This work is created digitally, using Procreate, and produced into a real book. Before the work, I investigated and organized my thoughts on the ocean, various images, and the way the ocean is shown in the media. This process became an important foundation for creating the work. I inserted many scenes emphasizing the scale of enormous ocean to arouse respect for the ocean.
