I've started work on a few cartoon collaborations. I find someone smarter than me with expertise in an interesting subject. We then work together on concepts for a string of cartoons on their subject.
I really think you're going to like the posts but I'm not going to rush them out before they're ready. If you want to make sure you don't miss the posts, click here to sign up for my email updates. But to tide you over, here's a new compilation.
I was unable to make it to the 2013 Eastern Evaluation Research Society conference but several of my cartoons went in my place. From what I hear, my cartoons made an appearance in four different presentations at EERS 2013.
I love it when my cartoons take on new life outside of the blog. How many other forms of communication can look so good in power point slides, blog posts, newspapers, and hanging on a wall?
About the illustrations
All of these illustrations and cartoons have lived lives apart from my blog. While many are not new, most have never even made an appearance on freshspectrum.
A few notes:
- If you like the post, write a comment and let me know.
- Share it with colleagues. Seeing people sharing my cartoons inspires me to create more cartoons.
- Please feel free to use my cartoons in presentations, training materials, etc.
Here's a cartoon I made for my colleague and friend Eden Segal. See her presenting in the tweet below.
Struggle between bad and good reports
Here is another cartoon I drew for a Westat colleague/friend Jen Hamilton. The fantastic haiku is all Jen's.
The next two cartoons were commissioned by the awesome Stephanie Evergreen. (*Spoiler Alert* I may or may not be working on a new collaboration with the rockin ukulele player).
Power Point Hibernation mode…
Don't get too excited
This lucky cartoon is traveling with my fellow Durham Westatian (it's a word), Tamara Daley, to Spain for IMFAR 2013.
Not all of my cartoons live their life in presentations. The following couple were commissioned by the wonderful Kylie Hutchinson. At least one was destined for a training manual.
Those of you following me for a little while know I was cartooning a lot during last year's evaluation conference. Helen Salmon just plain stands out, which calls for a cartoon. This one now lives as Helen's twitter avatar.
Calling All World Savers
The fantastic Maria Gajewski reached out to me looking for a new profile image, here is what I came up with.
I meant midnight
I put this together when collecting Ignite presentations from session presenters. It ended up in the AEA newsletter.
Thank You Susan
This one I drew for Susan Kistler, another one that ended up in the AEA newsletter. Sitting on my iPad I have a string of cartoons drawn to thank those that inspire me daily, most of the time that's where they stay.
There are more
Starting soon I plan to release more cartoons than just the ones that show up in freshspectrum posts. I am constantly creating but not all the cartoons fit what I am trying to do on this site. If you want to see the extra cartoons join my email list, as I plan to release them exclusively via email.
I wasn't planning on adding any additional cartoons but after Sheila's sweet comment I had to add hers to this post.
