The future is bleak, bitches. Give it approximately 50 years and all the big cities will be underwater. Humans will probably need to evolve gills or, at the very least, fancy breathing apparatuses for all the toxic fumes in the air. The landscape will be dotted with old car tyres, industrial waste and smelly clumps of allergens (like that moss currently growing on your bathroom ceiling, yummy). Basically, shit will be real.

That is, if you listen to Boston-born illustrator, artist and publisher Alex Lukas (and maybe climate change experts, but everybody knows that nobody important cares about them). This American's latest watercolour and ink series is amazing in the same way those recent shots of the Chernoybl aftermath are. They're depressingly beautiful, and may make you think just a little bit about the fate of this beautiful planet.

Greenie-rant over, Lukas has also produced a portfolio heavy with illustration, posters, typography and graphic comics. He doesn't mind the occasional warped homage to Batman and The Hulk, and also runs his very own publishing company, Cantab. Our favourite is the At Least Things Can't Get Any Worse graphic. We like to think of it as a motivational poster.
