Greta Thunberg is a 16 year old girl from Sweden. Nothing particularly spectacular about that... only that she is one of the most prominent climate activists of the 21st century and has been nominated for a Nobel peace prize. Greta is most famously known for ‘School Strike for Climate Change’. Back in December 2018, Greta made a speech for the United Nation, that really laid bare the truth about the problem that we’re all facing.
I was also inspired by the ‘State of The Planet’ visual essay below which was centered around climate change. The style in particular was very appealing to me, as I had create various digital artworks before using a graphics tablet, but this style was very cartoon-esque and for more stylistic that any of my previous work. I drew out all of my assets individually in Photoshop, and then inserted then in After Effects and began manipulating them and key-framing them.
This piece was created for the Motion Graphics module during the 1st year of my degree.
