The art of science and the science of art.

Defending the Brown Recluse Spider


I recently had the pleasure of working with the team at Buzz Hoot Roar, a new graphics-driven blog that shares and/or explains a scientific concept in 300 words or less. They asked me to be one of their participants, and I chose to illustrate a short piece they wrote about brown recluse spider bites, specifically their over-diagnosis. I made what I am now referring to as an info-comic: an information rich science story told with comics. I hope you like it! Follow Buzz Hoot Roar on Twitter to see more!
