These ads for Greenpeace urging people to sign an online petition to save our seas won a Gold Lion at Cannes back in 2009. That’s not Photoshop: the wonderful colored-pencil sculptures of underwater life are by South African artist Jennifer Maestre. Now, a little voice in my head said, “but you don’t sign petitions with colored pencils.” True. But then I stabbed myself in the head with a pen because sometimes, it’s OK to not be so fucking literal.
The gorgeous ads actually inspired me to go online and sign.
Why don’t you do the same.
