For this concept, my intention is to use line, shape, value, form and space to create proportions, variety, unity and emphasis.
Using these art elements and design principles, I remind people how plastics are a contributing factor to climate change. To support this message, I creatively combine the unrelated ideas of bullying with climate change.
After personifying all these different components, I use value and roughly the same scale to unify them; however, to create contrast and emphasis on the world globe, I arrange it at the center of the composition, reduce its scale and use it as the main light source.
