Ecological Illustrations: Adobe Create Waves
Ecological poster illustrations dedicated to the importance of ocean and nature preservation and protection. The vector illustrations were created for Create Waves video showcase, a creative ecological event organized in 2021 by Adobe Creative Cloud, in partnership with The Ocean Agency. The illustrations participated in the Ocean Decade exhibition organized by the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development with UNESCO and UN Environmental Protection, in partnership with Adobe Creative Cloud. The illustrations participated also in the Our Planet Week illustration challenge, and for every participating illustration was planted a tree by One Tree Planted.
Preserve life – For this illustration, I felt the need to point out a catastrophic truth: water pollution. During summer, when everybody escapes to the sea and ocean to enjoy the sun, huge amounts of plastic and bottles are abandoned on the beach and in the water. Marine biodiversity struggles deeply as a result of human ignorance. Please always remember to clean your own mess!
Preserve – Protect the flora you are stepping on, the earth, and the water that feeds you, the air that fills your lungs and veins with oxygen! Protect what keeps you alive! We must remember how insignificant we are in comparison with the force and beauty of nature.
Energy – We are surrounded by energy! This vector illustration is a tribute brought to the natural renewable energy sources from which we benefit so much: the Sun, the wind, the water, the earth, and the vegetation. As we are the luckiest human beings in the whole Universe, we should be more grateful.
Voice – Do you hear the subtle voice of nature crying for your help? Listen and react until is not too late! For example, hummingbirds live on the edge of survival. As a result, with the growing destruction of their natural habitat and the use of chemical pesticides for agriculture, hummingbirds are threatened with extinction.
