Unemployed = more cartoons!

A former colleague of mine asked me to draw some ‘engineering superheroes’ for a TEDx talk that he is giving next month. The idea is to get kids excited about engineering by showing them all the great things that engineers do. This link provides some context for the talk I’ve put a few examples of things which I consider to be great example of engineering in the background like the A380, the Burj Al Arab, the Millau Viaduct and the Falkirk Wheel.

This was a leaving gift to my ex-supervisor James, who’s a big fan of cartoons, especially the Beano. We often joked that he should have a PA system so that he could call me into his office in a nasal voice.

I drew this cartoon as Secret Santa present for a friend of mine who works at the Natural History Museum (although it was pretty obvious who it was from). If I wasn’t a designers or cartoonist I would love to be a palaeontologist, so I’m extremely jealous of her job. Anyway, I found out that she was researching the evolution of four-leggedness in bird-hipped dinosaurs (they started out on two legs interestingly), and I tried to think of a silly and mundane reason why this might have happened. I also experimented with using a limited palette of colours which worked out really well.
