Water and Environment

I painted these information graphics for interpretive signs at the The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment in San Marcos, Texas. Water is fundamental and magical. To make the complexity understandable without oversimplifying it: make a good picture of it. Humans are so visual that they understand pictures better than anything else.

Non-point-source pollution. It comes from everywhere and flows downhill, concentrating in the water.

How the underlying geology creates the look of the surface landscape. In this case, block faults and limestone form a series of springs, lakes and underground caverns.

    Hey Paul,
    I am working with Staff at the Meadows Center @ Texas State and they have forwarded your illustrations to me for consideration in publication about water resources. I was wondering if we could speak at your convenience about this opportunity.
