Second Mermay piece! This piece is to raise awareness on Toxic Pollution.
Sewage, toxic chemicals from the industries, oil spills and ocean mining are the major causes of toxins in our ocean. The garbage and sewage that is dumped by ships contains toxic chemicals while the industrial and agricultural waste are directly discharged into the oceans. The dumping of toxic liquids in the ocean directly affects the marine life as they are hazardous and raise the temperature of the ocean (thermal pollution). Due to the high temperature of these liquids, animals and plants that cannot survive at higher temperatures will eventually perish. There are a lot more to talk about ocean pollution and ways to help improve it, even just by simply swapping to using natural products will help a lot!
It took me longer to finish this illustration than I wanted it to be but I wanted to challenge myself to paint something out of my comfort zone💪 so I hope you like this🐟 🌎
