Melting Away

For my portfolio class I'm doing a series of 4 posters that show how animals are being affected by global warming. This one is showing how the polar bear is affected. Polar bears usually swim long distances to catch their food. They depend on ice bergs as a bridge back to their homes, yet they are melting away. This forces polar bears to swim until exhaustion with no rest and risks their chance of drowning. This illustration shows the polar bear sitting on top of the earth while it is melting away from the pollution that is rising. The northern lights in the top background represent the purity of this planet that is fading away. The medium was nupastels.
