Bushfires

bushfires 2020

Here’s a tiny sketch I did after seeing photographs of the recent bushfires on the eastern seaboard of Australia. The orange/black skies and enormous swathes of burnt vegetation have filled me with horror and despair. We have been spared the devastation of bushfires here in Mandurah in Western Australia so far this summer, but know it could happen to us at any time. We need the federal government to take climate change seriously and start reducing emissions dramatically.
