I was hired to create an activity page for the first issue of Root and Stem Magazine by Pinnguaq Association. I proposed, designed, illustrated and laid out this activity about the climate change crisis.
Root & Stem is by Pinnguaq. They’re a not-for-profit organization, incorporating S.T.E.A.M into unique learning applications that promote storytelling, health, wellness and growth to isolated communities in Northern Ontario. You can actually download the first issue for free on their website.
I sketched and painted the whole thing digitally in Procreate and Adobe Photoshop using brushes that gave it a painted acrylic look. I was also lucky enough to have control over laying out the type in Photoshop. It made a huge difference, speeding up the process and allowing me to move things around as necessary to fit all the information.
I love using my illustration to educate, so this project was a perfect fit for me.
