Svalbard, 2009. I began addressing climate change in my work 12 years ago actually, but for the purpose of the 10 yr challenge, here’s a drawing from 2009 of the Arctic Ocean near Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. I was still too afraid to draw ice even though I was discussing it in my artist statements (I didn’t think I could render such sharp, defined and detailed surfaces with soft pastel, and white is the trickiest color to blend). It gnawed at me for another 3 years while I explored water, and made excuses like “it’s melted ice!”. I finally gave it a go in 2012, and haven’t stopped since.

Back to work on this bad boy (this is one section of a much larger piece!). Summer sea ice melting in the Lincoln Sea, off the coast of Greenland.

Another one from Dickson, Torres Del Paine, Patagonia. Special thanks to @jrad_, who hates having his picture taken, but (reluctantly) posed countless times for me on this trip😘❤️

Sound on! It has been a pleasure and honor to collaborate with @lindbladexp for the past 4 years! Today we kicked off a brand new project that I’m super excited to share with you- more on that soon! This footage is from my most recent trip to Antarctica aboard the National Geographic Explorer in Nov 2018. See the full video on IGTV! Antarctica:🎥@eric_wehrmeister, studio:🎥@k_corea

Almost everyday in Patagonia @jrad_ and I wondered if we had entered some kind of massive, CGI’d park. Like Westworld without the violence. Turns out this planet is just more beautiful than anything our imaginations can conjure!

The SINGLE drone shot we got during 1 month in Patagonia! Christmas Eve, our last night in the wilderness. We car camped between the sea and a snow capped volcano, sipped wine and made a Christmas tree.
