Carbon Removal Illustrations

Hand-Drawn Illustrations | Communication Design | Copywriting | Climate Advocacy | CO2 Removal

Tools: Pen | Paper | Markers

Through a series of hand-drawn illustrations, I explore the transformative power of environmental solutions and climate action. These works are more than just visual representations; they are a testament to the urgent need for change. With a passion for design and a commitment to sustainability, I aim to communicate complex ideas and inspire positive action through art. Each piece reflects the beauty of our natural world and the hope for a greener future, making it a visual journey towards a more sustainable tomorrow.

These illustrations for various carbon removal solutions have been used to raise awareness and garner attention for companies, non-profits, NGOs, and Universities working in this space. They have increased impressions up to 1,500%, while communicating complex ideas in an easily digestible way.

Reforestation | Planting trees to restore nature and fight climate change in deforested areas.

Ocean Afforestation | Planting underwater forests, like seagrass, to absorb CO2.

Kelp Forests | Underwater ecosystems of large seaweeds (kelp) that absorb CO2 from the ocean through photosynthesis.

Enhanced Rock Weathering | A method that uses finely ground rocks to capture and store CO2 from the atmosphere by accelerating the natural process of weathering.

Direct Air Capture (DAC) | A technology that sucks CO2 out of the air to reduce its concentration.

Cover Cropping | A farming practice where specific crops are planted in between main crops to improve soil health, reduce erosion, and sequester CO2.
