Since I was small, I have been going diving with my Dad. To me it was always more than just swimming, it was like every time I dived underwater, time stopped. That is why it is important to show people what they are ruining, what they are demolishing.The first thing that came to my mind was to draw a human, but instead of a including a brain, I filled the human's head with the ocean, representing that we are one, that we strongly rely on water supply and have to take care of it just like we take care of ourselves. I also drew an iceberg floating on the top melting down. The melting of ice caps due to global warming causes many problems for humans and other species. The bubble of water is overflowing, representing rising sea levels due to global warming and the melting of ice. I drew water dripping on the human trying to show that it affects us all. I drew the human face as concerned by showing her eyebrows slightly curved at the top. Her eyes are closed to show that human beings close our eyes to these problems. The human can be seen holding a hair dryer, but she is holding it in a way she would hold a gun, showing that our New technologies are the things that destroy. The wire of the hair dryer is strangling the human, showing that our inventions kill us. I drew a halo around her head but if looked at closer, it is composed of a circle of factory buildings releasing waste in the air, causing air pollution which contributes to global warming.
