  • This week I participated in a symposium at @christiesinc called “The Roll of Art in the Environmental Crisis” along with artists, orgs and people I greatly admire like @janetbiggs1, @miranda_massie, @climatemuseum, @nrdc_org, @justinbriceguariglia, @wavehill (and @georgeboorujy & @dianeburko in the audience!) For years I’ve seen art fairs and exhibits void of art addressing our climate. It’s arguably the largest global crisis we face, and I think artists play a critical role in communicating such a complex issue. I am glad that an established art institution is hosting a climate discussion in their education programming, and honored to be a part of it🙌🏼 Thanks to #nancyprincenthal for inviting me, and Julie Reiss for hosting!

  • Almost finished! This one is for me. I’ve never kept a drawing, and I decided it was finally time to. It’s an iceberg in Disco Bay, Greenland, where I spread my mom’s ashes.

  • 🌊HAPPY WORLD OCEANS DAY!🌊
In celebration of our blue planet, here’s a few oceanscapes I’ve drawn over the years.
.
Climate change, overfishing, pollution, and acidification have pushed our oceans to the brink of collapse. By 2050 the ocean is expected to contain more plastic than fish (by weight). Half of the world’s corals have been lost and what remains is dying rapidly.
. 
Here’s the good news: solutions to this massive issue already exist! Fisherman are becoming ocean farmers. Scientists are growing new reefs. Communities are protecting their oceans for generations to come. Our planet is resilient, and when we work together to restore balance in our ecosystems, they flourish.
.
It’s now our responsibility to reverse the damage we’ve done, because all living beings depend on it!
.
To celebrate #worldoceansday please consider donating to any organization working to restore and protect our oceans. A few of my fav’s: @sealegacy, @lonelywhale, @oceanic.global 
If you can’t donate, consider making a pledge to limit your use of single-use plastic,  and vote politicians into office who speak out about these issues and promise to work on solutions.

  • Congratulations @protectourwinters for raising over $82k!!! @jeremyjones founded POW in 2007, and since then they have been turning professional winter athletes into effective climate advocates. They are now branching out to storytellers and artists like @jimmychin and myself, to help continue their mission to affect systemic political solutions to climate change. I’m honored to be a part of this community, and YOU  can join too! Follow @protectourwinters to learn more!

  • As our climate changes, ice melt is speeding up. The rate at which all of Antarctica is shedding ice for example has tripled in the last decade. BUT real solutions to our climate crisis exist, and many of them are already at play. It’s a steep hill to climb, but I strongly believe we are heading in the right direction overall - we just need to seriously pick up the pace!
