An illustrated essay to spread awareness about Indigenous Peoples. The Archipelago of Hope is a book by Gleb Raygorodetsky that was published in 2017. Through visiting many communities of Indigenous Peoples, he sheds a light on the realities of climate change and the pressures of ‘modern civilisation’s insistent development. To me, illustration is a powerful way of getting people to look at or read something. Through writing my own illustrated essay/summary for Gleb Raygorodetsky’s book, I found a way to use illustration to effectively interest people in topics that I find important.
