This week, I’m excited to show a project I’ve been working on. My Dad, (small animal doctor and small animal) Chris Little, gave me a copy of “Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences: Cartoon Abstracts”.
This magazine is a collection of Cartoons that describe different scientific papers and studies in easy to digest one page comics (you can find examples here: http://explore.tandfonline.com/page/est/cartoon-abstracts) . Dad had met one of the guys behind it and figured that I could try my hand at drawing a page.
I was given a paper my Dad had collaborated on; “Purring in cats during auscultation: how common is it, and can we stop it?” Bit of a mouthful, but in layman’s terms it’s about how cats purr when they’re in distress, which can be a pain when your trying to hear their heart rate and breathing, so how do you make them quiet down?
After drawing out a quick sketch I sat down with my new favorite gadget, the drawing tablet, and this is the result.
It’s not finished yet, but I’m really happy with the results so far.
In 2 weeks I’ll be showing the finished comic and maybe get back into the real world with my work. See you soon.
