Climate change is pulling the sea ice out from under polar bears’ feet, forcing them to swim longer distances to find food and habitat. Long-distance swimming puts polar bears at risk of drowning due to fatigue or rough seas.
Ballpoint pen & 22K Gold Leaf Applique on Moleskine paper
Wow how do people do things like this. Ballpoint pen and 22K Gold leaf applique on Moleskine!?!?
I don’t know if this is a rhetorical question or not but I’ve made things in this technique before. It’s very, very time consuming and skill intensive. You have to use the pen very lightly and it’s easy to make a mistake, and the mistakes are really obvious. I’ve usually done works with ballpoint freehand (obviously nothing this quality) but you can tell these were meticulously planned and composed.
And then of course on top of that you have the gold leaf, which if the artist is using classic leafing technique (sheets of gold leaf) is a whole nother level of possible instant ruination.
Basically what I’m saying is that this is as hard as it looks.

"Pipo on turvallinen paikka. Jos pikkueläin on yksinäinen ja vähän kylmettynyt, sinne on myös helppo sujauttaa lämminvesipullon joukkoon, Leyser-Kopra kertoo.
Oravat eivät kuitenkaan kohtele pipojaan hellävaraisesti, vaan kiskovat tupsut ja muut koristeet irti ensimmäisenä. Vuodessa oravien kynsissä kuluu puhki arviolta pari sataa pipoa.”
