Illustration of an iceberg turned upside down.
This assignment was an interesting challenge. The brief was clear: icebergs goes crazy, turns upside down and loses the usual proportions. To show that I created an iceberg which most of it was outside the water and turned it into underwater. So to create the illustration you have snow, ice, underwater caustics and bubbles to create the odd underwater look. Also the title is behind and deformed by the ice refraction. With the inverted title “Arctic Meltdown” all makes an interesting image.
