The Most Beautiful Environmental Ads Ever Produced

These print ads for Greenpeace are amazing works of art.

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.
