Editorial Illustration on the Melting Ice Shelves of Antarctica

This mock-editorial illustration was created as an illustration that might accompany an article on the quickly-vanishing Antarctic ice shelves due to rapid climate change.  It attempts to gain the viewer's sympathy by personifying a penguin as a homeless inhabitant of a city.  The imposing legs of a businessman (representing capitalism) trap the penguin in the composition – a metaphor for how capitalism has supported industries that are leading to climate change, thereby trapping penguins in the conditions climate change will bring.
