SOME OF MY illustrations
I take humor very seriously. Humor has the capacity to expose painful truths and show incongruities in the way we live and think. Combine this with visual storytelling and we have the most incredible tool to engage people. That's why I think it's helpful to invite an experienced cartoonists to your conference or discussion.
It's not just to bring in some fun - although it will! - it's because it will take the discussion one step further: right to the hearts of your participants.
WHAT OTHERS SAY
"Betje’s work offers our humanitarian team the unique power of visual humor: her art can detect and depict the core of what’s absurdly wrong about our climate problems, therefore shedding light on potential ways forward. Her “Atlas of Doom” cartoon has already inspired a generation of scientists, disaster managers, climate negotiators, and activists."
