In December 2009 I joined thousands of protesters at the Copenhagen climate talks (COP15), to push our world leaders towards making crucial decisions about the state of our climate and what we can do to prevent 'runaway climate change'. Unfortunately, world leaders failed to deliver a legally binding commitment to cutting greenhouse gases. On the plus side, I came away with a totally fresh outlook on everything, from my own way of living, to my illustrative practise. After that week I knew that, my role as a visual communicator holds the power in creating universal awareness of our over-consumerist impact on Earth (potentially, anyway!).
