Iceberg Illustration for Scientific American
This assignment was an interesting challenge. The brief was clear: iceberg turns upside down and loses its usual proportions. So to create the illustration, I created an iceberg that was right-side up but with underwater caustics and bubbles to create the odd underwater look. I also distorted the title to make it appear refracted through the ice. With the inverted headline “Arctic Meltdown”, it all made for a very interesting image.
