Simple Art Universally Explains Radiation

The simple cartoon style artwork by Misato Yugi began showing up online soon after the Fukushima Daiichi disaster.  The “red pebbly” series of pieces use simple scenarios with red dots to express the interaction of dangerous radiation with the subjects. 

Copies of the works in various forms have been used as both awareness and to raise funds for charities related to the nuclear disaster. More information and the ongoing works at Misato Yugi’s blog
