Global Warming Series Continued...

These are the other two in the global warming series that I am doing. They were both done in nupastels. The first one is depicting the problem that is facing penguins. Their food source of krill is swimming to colder water since water temperature is increasing. This is decreasing the penguins food supply and ends with several starving. So this illustration is showing the adult penguin trying to feed the baby but the krill is swimming away in the current while the water is warming. The second is more straight forward showing the drying environment of the painted turtle. I went more with an abstract and simplified approach for this one. The dried out land shapes are repeated in the shell while the turtle is disappearing into the shadows.
