I created these illustrations to represent scientific processes in a more stylized way rather than them being just informational. These processes that happen all around us are natural to Earth but we benefit from them immensely. I wanted to draw attention to them as a simple “thank you” to Earth and to also interest people in the beauty of these processes.
How was the illustration used:
Portfolio Work. To pair with information inside articles or books about Earth.
How did you make this work:
I used a lot of symbolism in this mini series to convey information. For example, the compass in the ‘Earth’s Layers’ illustration is to symbolize the magnetic field that is created by the movement of liquid iron in the outer core.
I researched about these processes online and sketched whatever came to my mind on paper. I then finalized each illustration using procreate on iPad.
