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
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/
Working with writer Rebecca Thompson-Flagg, we recently completed PhysicsQuest 2009: SPECTRA – The Original Laser Superhero. Here is a link to the e-book version. SPECTRA E-Book. It also will be uploaded to the http://www.physicscentral.com website next week.
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
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.
