Amanda Mijangos

I knew it would come to this, overpowering despair, but I didn't expect it to be so rapid. I am talking of the current decimation of a continent and its flora and fauna, the world watches helplessly as the fires burn in Australia, the smoke blocks the sun in far off New Zealand, and billions of animals and plants succumb to the flames.
Meanwhile, while we are on this inevitable path of environmental disaster and our leaders, little egos diminishing in the scale of what is facing us, what do they do, but stoke the fire with inaction and start a war for distraction.

This illustration is by Amanda Mijangos, I loved its twists, it's pattern and though by no means aboriginal, it has a flavour of the story and rhythms of such artists works.
