Social Science Research as a Comic

Our illustrator, Pino Cao, recently wrapped up an amazing project with Dr. Carolyn Dicey Jennings from the Center for The Humanities at the University of California, Merced. The University was looking for a comic artist with some experience in social sciences to translate Dr. Jenning’s research into a 4-page comic. 

Together, Pino and Dr. Jennings transformed her research and recently published book “The Attending Mind” into a thoughtful planned and illustrated comic. The comic is published in their bobcat comic series on Escholarships online here

Pino also had the opportunity to speak about this project in a webinar about how to turn research into comics with Dr. Jennings, professor Felicia Lopez, and artist Jordan Collver.
