Spectra the comic book series that I illustrate for PhysicsCentral.com. In March, the author and I completed Issue #5. – Spectra: Turbulent Times. We tried something new with the cover paper, check out the “metallic-silver” coated paper stock.
When I’m not illustrating caricatures and cartoons, I stay busy working as the director of art and special publications at the American Physical Sociey in College Park, MD. Here’s a series of 3 feet by 6 feet promotional banners that I designed. They will be displayed at the association’s booth at conferences.
My colleague Chris DiScenza visited Kenya and shared with a classroom, PhysicsQuest 2008: Nikola Tesla and the Electric Fair, the comic/activity book that I illustrated for PhysicsCentral.com. http://tiny.cc/30fr9
Spectra, the superhero that I co-created with physicist Rebecca Thompson-Flagg continues to make her media rounds. Here is a link to a story about Spectra’s real life alter-ego that appeared in the American Physical Society’s APS News publication. http://tiny.cc/9u730
Here’s an online flip page version of the recent comic.
Just got the confirmation that the character that I co-created (with Rebecca Thompson-Flagg), “Spectra” the Original Laser Superhero was approved for booth space at next summer’s Comic Con in San Diego: http://www.comic-con.org/
COMING IN SEPTEMBER: A newly-designed postcard to promote the next edition of PhysicsQuest, an activity/comic book presented by the American Physical Society’s Outreach Department: http://www.physicscentral.com
Here’s a recent caricature that I illustrated for a co-worker who’s celebrating her retirement from the American Physical Society where I work as the art director.
I recently designed the mascot for the Physics Buzz Blog:
The American Physical Society represents some 45,000 physicists, and most of our work centers on scientific meetings and publications-the primary ways that physicists communicate with each other. With PhysicsCentral, we communicate the excitement and importance of physics to everyone. We invite you to visit our site every week to find out how physics is part of your world. We’ll answer your questions on how things work and keep you informed with daily updates on physics in the news. We’ll describe the latest research and the people who are doing it and, if you want more, where to go on the web. So stick with us. It’s a big, interesting world out there, and we look forward to showing you around.
I designed a sticker to be used on construction site workers’ hard hats. It also can be used as a vehicle bumper sticker. Regardless of the limited space, the sticker’s powerful message highlights the importance of science, technology and physics in today’s workplace.
