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.
