Science Online Day 0 Quick Comic

Still working on posting my science scribe notes from Science Online 2012. In the meantime, here's the first of a series of quick comic sketches from my experience! Doing these while I recover from the nerdobacter plague. This one is Day 0 (aka Wednesday night), in which I start off incredibly nervous, but quickly realize I'm with kindred spirits.

Edit: This day features @DrBondar, @_ColinS_, @Szvan, @BenZvan, and hugs from @BoraZ.

Next: Day 1


  1. I love this and can't wait to see the rest of the days!

  2. This is pretty much how I felt the first time I went too: not a scientist or a science journalist, 4 years ago I felt what Stephanie Zvan described as "imposter syndrome". Like I didn't belong.

    I still feel it a little bit, here and there. What made this year extra awesome was the presence of so many artists! We brought the thunder. Visual images were a whole track of the conference, from sketchnotes, to sessions, to tattoos to ipad painting. Good to have our gang, and really glad to finally meetcha in person.

  3. Definitely experienced a bit of "impostor syndrome," but the sciart presence was a huge help with that! No doubt it was one of the major highlights for me. Loved having our gang too and it was amazing to meet everyone!

  4. You were one of the hits of the convention, Katy. Glad we got to share cupcakes and chatter. :)

  5. I love the representations of Carin and Colin. Totally to scale!
