ECO Labs - 6 degrees

I haven't been posting much this year mainly due to the fact that I have had so much work on. This project in particular took me over a month to complete. 

I was quite a hard task set by Eco labs.  The project is based on Mark Lynas' book 'Six degrees' which talks about what will happen to the world as it heats up degree by degree until it reaches the point of 6 degrees. Six artists were involved in the project including Jody Barton and Airside and I had to illustrated a world where the climate temperature had risen by 6 degrees. 

I decided to base my illustration on the painting 'The raft of Medusa' not only because it had historical context but also because of the despair and drama.
