While many of us enjoy the luxury of watching TV on our couch with a cold can of soda or beer, the ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. Polar bears that need the ice to hunt and survive are drowning or starving; sometimes forced to search through dumpsters to survive. www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news…
Global warming is undeniably here. 2000-present date was the warmest decade on record worldwide www.epa.gov/climatechange/indi…. This is not part of the natural climate change but a human induced and an abnormally accelerated increase in temperature. Waiting for the countdown until all the ice caps and glacier have melted and water level has risen is not an option.
Many of us think that helping to prevent global warming is just about driving a hybrid car, or getting solar panels, which most people can't afford, so why bother?
While fossil fuel burning cars are a huge source of green house gasses, many other things also add up to create the problem. The manufacturing of anything takes up energy, which is usually created by burning fossil fuel like gas and coal. Relying on oil also lets big oil companies like BP and ExxonMobile get away with oil spills time and time again (with the most recent large spill in Yellowstone national park billingsgazette.com/news/local…) With that in mind, I'm not saying we should give up everything we own and live in the wild, but any amount of reduce, reuse, and recycle will lessen the amount of new products that needs manufacturing. And that's something we can all do.
Taking public transportation, carpooling, or riding a bike are a cost efficient and healthy way to save energy and money. Even eating less meat (especially cows and pigs), can greatly help because it takes more energy to raise a cow than some crops of the same nutritional value. Cows are also a huge source of methane, which is another type of greenhouse gases that's responsible for global warming.
There are many other small things that we can all do help the environment like turning off the lights when we're not in the room, or not using the AC or heater if we could just take off or put on a jacket instead.
Change is not waiting for the scientists and government to come up with the solution, change starts with the little things we can do everyday.
~~~~ It has come to my attention that my work closely resembles this one pepey.deviantart.com/art/globa… which was made 2 years before mine. I have never seen this until after I posted my drawing, and people started telling me about the similarities between the two. I did not copy the idea and the similarities are purely coincidental. Congrats to pepey who came up with it first, but please do not assume that I plagiarized.
Finally did the whole main cast. XDDD OTL After like, what, half a year? Hush. xD
Tried out a new chibi style, and I really like it. c: Also, cel-shading skills +1 y/y?
I vectored out the logo and the Seattle skyline thingy because I have that kind of time. I have the Frasier logo as a stamp now so I can slap it on any digital painting I choose~ buahahaha. orz I need a life XD

Thanks for looking everyone, should you choose to fave my work I give great thanks, Please zoom in for best view. The mind is an infinite place, a place of unbridled power, a universe all it's own. John Milton — 'The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..' Looking deep within one's self, digging through the shadows is the first step towards true enlightenment and self healing. This is the companion piece for my other work titled "sea of reflection" www.redbubble.com/people/icali… www.bluecanvas.com/icalink www.facebook.com/icalink/icema… www.pinterest.com/icemaidenArt…
Much of my art is an expression of the marvels of the mind's eye, this piece is no exception, our brains are one of, if not the most complex structure within the known universe, our mind's have the potential to dream up the impossible, to shape our futures and our evolution, they have the ability to create whole new worlds within themselves. Never underestimate the power of your mind or your power to dream! If Einstein and Newton had no imagination and no presence of mind where would we be today? The greatest mind's in history all made use of their imaginations! Don't be afraid to loose yourself in a daydream!
