I was one of two illustrators who created over 250 graphics for the Fifth Assessment Report, which is a climate science report produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This 3-part report is produced every seven years and is often referred to as the "climate science bible". Working with the IPCC for two years was one of the most rewarding experiences I've had. I was able to attend the 38th session of the IPCC Plenary in Yokohama, Japan, at which time my co-illustrator and I were live editing the final Summary for Policy Makers graphics.
As the Assessment Report was being published, the IPCC Working Group II asked me to create an animated explainer for the first illustration in the report. I got to work with Marion O'Leary, and together we co-wrote a piece of custom music for the animation.
