I spent the best part of the week drawing a 6-pages comic to submit to the Stripburger open call. It’s a science-fiction story with much more ‘fiction’ than ‘science’ (for once) which I wrote a long time ago and it was really good to get out of my system. It features comets, an evil scientist and some kind of love… it’s a metaphor for how science, in its attempt to control the universe, sometimes forgets about human emotions. I hope you will be able to read it in print soon, in the meanwhile here is the cover:
This is a page from my latest comic, you can read it in full on my new website. Yes, I have a new website! Also the blog has a new design, did you notice? This is all part of my new year resolution of becoming a professional cartoonist. Sadly the truth is that I am still working full-time as a research scientist. But starting from next month I already have some interesting commissions and many other projects lined up. So watch this space, this time I mean it.
Thanks to everyone who came to play with Neurocomic at the first Imperial Fringe night! (it was really fun to draw zombie comics with you kids)
In case you couldn’t make it, here is the science-horror comic we were giving away.
We still have a few copies left so if you want some for your Halloween party let me know.
PS: someone the other night was asking me what happened to Watson and Little Albert after the experiment. Well, here is a more complete (and possibly even more terrifying!) version of the story.
It is again that time of the year when I have to draw something for my favourite Italian fanzine. The topic of the next issue is cycle and once again it inspired me a sad love story (with a scientific twist). It also gave me an opportunity to experiment a little bit with what I call hypercomics. Although, since last Wednesday Randall Munroe published click and drag this word assumed a whole new meaning. If you haven’t seen it yet I strongly recommend you to take a few minutes to explore this comic masterpiece. But first of all, enjoy The Water Cycle:
Here is a short comic about the sneaky strategies used by the anti-abortion movement in the UK. It’s written by a friend, based on the excellent investigation from Education for Choice, already published on the Guardian last Summer.
