I do a gag cartoon based on some science for the Science Borealis Newsletter that comes out every full moon.
Single panel cartoons I submit to magazines. I've been published in the Harvard Business Review, among others.
Science World Blog
I draw a comic to go along with a science article I write every month for Science World. This was about the part of the chicken often called the "Pope's Nose." I hope nobody gets upset about it. Inspired by my hero, Leonardo da Vinci.
Commissioned for the Hastings Park web site on the treatment of Japanese Canadians during World War II.
An imagined scene in the Japanese Canadian community after Pearl Harbor published in the Nikkei Voice. Inspired by Art Spiegelman's Maus.
My Writing Group
Published in the Nikkei Voice, August 2017. Our group was originally called the Depraved Haberdashers but that seems to fallen in disuse by current members.
Illustrations illustrate my point.
