Talking Visual Communication on BreakingBio

Email   PrintPrint

The circle-tacular BreakingBio logo

Summer went by swiftly, but my words of wisdom shall last throughout the ages. Come and be charmed by Bug Girl, Steven Hamblin and Morgan Jackson, while I deliver my sermon from atop the Canadian peaks of sciart greatness, and spread loaves of sage advice and tattooed goodness to gladden your heart.

It is I, my own self on the BreakingBio podcast from when summer was but an expectation and not a certainty. Steven even posted it on my birthday, last June in another unnecessary appeal to my ego. We discussed visuals in science, beetle illustrations, copyright, tattoos and I broke the experience for podcast audio listeners by screensharing like a diva.


You are welcome, everyone. Go make some science art or commission it at the very least.
