Lords of the Arctic
My latest children’s book has been published! It was exciting illustrating for Patti Petrone Miller (author) and her wonderful story about arctic animals and climate change. This project was hundreds of hour’s worth of illustration. Finding ways to bring vibrant color into the arctic scenes of winter took some extra creativity and illustrating animals is something I thoroughly enjoy. I look forward to working with Patti again soon
Yutu is a fifteen-year-old Inuit boy who lives in the Arctic region and is closely watching a family of polar bears. Solar is a large male, Climate is a female, Ice and Snow are the cubs, and all will learn what survival will be like in a new world of melting ice.
It’s an exciting and sometimes dangerous journey full of beautiful scenery and lots of other Arctic animals that they meet along the way.
Yutu’s parents head an Arctic conservation team. His father is an environmentalist, and his mother is a marine biologist. Together they team up with Yutu’s best friend, who is a veterinarian. Yutu’s younger sister, who is a photographer, also tags along to capture the animals on film. His grandparents tag along to make sure this journey supplies them with enough clothing, shelter, and food.
It will be a long journey as they follow the bears through the brutal and fragile terrain of the Arctic, hoping to find a way to save them from extinction.
Lords of the Arctic is an ongoing series that will take the family through the winter, spring, summer, and fall in the Arctic and Antarctic. It will focus on the many animals that live there: such as narwhals, seals, penguins, and whales, to name a few. This series will teach children the importance of becoming guardians of the Earth and doing their part so future generations of all matter of life can survive and thrive.
Teachers can add these books to their classroom curriculum. Climate change is a reality that their students need to know about. This series will introduce students to climate change and its effects on the environment on the most northern and southern continents. Children will learn about Inuit Indians, Arctic animal life, the geography of the Arctic regions, and how Yutu and his group measure the effects of climate change. Most importantly, they will learn what they can easily do themselves to battle this global crisis.
