Fire In Daily Life

The "close fire" in a daily life and the "distant fire" burning continuously in the far forests are equally expressed as if they are advertised on the same page of the magazine. That may show us the awareness that no matter what kind of fire is, it is fire that matters to us.

I try to avoid making an explanatory drawing that simply shows cause and effect when I decided to participate in this project with the theme of environmental issues.

I chose forest fires as a motif here, but I think it is a first step to take any kinds of environmental issues as our own problem.
