The Power of Storytelling - Sequential Art

(Liz McCauley's character page in process, please click to enlarge)

Following the 2-hour presentation about Visual Storytelling and Science Through Sequential Art at the annual GNSI-conference last week, David R. Clarke led a very successful extended weekend workshop at Denver Botanic Gardens. 
The goal was to develop a one-page comic strip, but at the end of the third day all participants had laid out a 16-page story about topics such as invasive species in Hawaii to a frog who becomes a yoga teacher. 
The class will stay in touch and give a progress update and a possible publication of the material. It was a refreshing  experience for scientific illustrators who often focus to the minute details.
