After coming across too many deformed or dead birds tangled in fishing line on Long Beach I met the staff at the Oiled Bird Care Center in San Pedro, California. After learning that countless marine mammals and birds die from the ingestion of plastics dumped in the ocean, I wanted to help. I volunteered six months of my time designing a face for the rehabilitation facility. Influenced by graphic murals in Belfast, Northern Ireland, I created a linocut as a reference image for the mural.
