I used colored pencils and sharpies.
Air pollution is a terrible problem that keeps getting worse. There are many things people can do to not create so much air pollution. Most people though, don’t do the easy things to stop air pollution. Not only does air pollution affect the environment but, it affects our lungs. This issue is important to me because every time I go to Chicago I notice the foggy smoky air. I have been to New York too and the problem is even worse there. Most people don’t even know that this issue is speeding up global warming and killing our earth. I wanted to give some awareness to an issue that people could easily help fix. The smoke stacks in my artwork represent the buildings of the Chicago skyline. And I used darker colors because it is a dark, sad issue.
