Art process behind ‘A Pollination, A Pollution, A Pollinution’

Let me walk you through my art process of the 5th portrait from ‘Don’t Let Them Fool You’ series. It’s the bee – adorable little creature known in most of the world areas. Tiny, yet crucial to our survival, bumble bee is an important part of my series. 

Usually once the idea emerges, I make a few rough notes of whatever comes to my mind:

  • pollination
  • save the bees
  • bee friendly pesticides
  • plant flowers
  • favoured pop corn
  • tiny air mask
  • air pollution

With all the above ingredients, the idea starts cooking until I am ready to explore it further in my sketchbook. Find the of the process in the visual presentation. Enjoy!

‘Don’t let them fool you’ is an art series presenting a collection of animal portraits in response to rapidly growing need for sustainable actions.

Usually I create my art to make others smile. However there’s been an anxiety growing inside me and I needed to get it out. Nothing new… It’s about the health of our planet. So what if soon there won’t be anything to smile about? 

Isn’t nature the basis of everything?
