The right cartoon can change the world
It is said that an image is worth a thousand words, and that emotions help people retain information.
In my conservation career I've had to use the conventions of science to communicate about nature: graphs, technical reports, data tables.
These do not command the attention of children, or the average layman or non-environmentally aware adult.
Yet it is precisely these audience segments I want to communicate with; if I want to enhance knowledge, shift attitudes and change behaviours, what is the use of preaching to the choir?
For this reason I create educational comics and cartoons. The idea is to learn while having a laugh.
