Connect: Ecology & Comics

New Work in Progress. Check out how this project is unfolding on Instagram

“Connect: Ecology & Comics” is a mixed media graphic novel I’m creating in Saint Petersburg about the connections of different Russian people with their environment. In conversations with beekeepers, Arctic scientists, village people, and a firefighter I’m exploring each person’s environmental philosophy, covering both their joy and passion for nature as well as the serious problems they face, like bee deaths and climate change.

Each person is given his or her own voice in separate chapters created through different artistic media, including shellac ink, collage, crayons and pencils.
