There are many talented people working in science comics, from all kind of backgrounds (for an interesting analysis of science comics creators check out the study by Colver and Weitkamp 2018). None of us can speak for the whole community, but last week me and Jason McDermott (AKA Red Pen / Black Pen) had the pleasure to share our experience with the audience of the AAAs 2019 annual meeting. Our coordinator Susan Nasif unfortunately could not join us, but she was definitely there in spirit.
We also had follow up interview with Science magazine, I hope this will provide some inspiration/motivation for aspiring science cartoonists. Start drawing and don’t forget to send me your art, I hope to meet you all one day!
