The Climate Crisis is the most important challenge that we are currently facing. It can be easy to slip into hopelessness while watching environmental regulations get thrown out almost daily, but that kind of mindset never solved much. The only way we are going to get through this, and we will, is by not giving up the fight. This is something that has to be addressed on both the macro and micro levels. We need to stop buying so much plastic, but also fight for policy and regulation that reduces the amount of plastic we see on the store shelves.
A rectangular image split down the middle with a blue bar to create two square images. On the left is a photo of a sketchbook page showing various sketches used to create Climate Science images. There is overlayed text at the top left of the image that says "Sketches" and is underlined. On the right side of the image is a photograph of wind turbines in the ocean.
So where do you start? One way is with education. Climate Science is an organization entirely made up of volunteers that have created a website, app, and even books for children, to make information on climate easy to understand and free! There is even a team working on translating all of our content into as many languages as possible.

It has been a fantastic experience to be able to bring my illustration and data visualization skills to such an amazing project. Currently, I create around five images per week, all of which follow their visual guidelines. Shown here are just a small handful of my contributions. The rest can all be viewed on the Climate Science website, along with the work of my brilliant team members.
A rectangular image split down the middle with a blue bar so that it creates two sqaure areas. On the left is a headline that reads "Illustration" and below that are four illustrated images set in a grid against a light blue background. On the right side of the image is a mock up of a phone against a slightly darker blue background. The phone is open to a page from the Climate Science website and features an illustration of the Earthly character welding a sun.
