Grumpy Weeble cartoon for Jo VanEvery, all rights reserved

The delightful Jo VanEvery wanted a cartoon — stat! — for a seminar she was doing. She wanted someone that looked a bit like one’s inner academic saying, “no!” to all the possibilities for one’s career and research. We decided on a weeble, and I sent her the colors you see above for a poster, and the inks (which I always scan before I color, in case of mishap), which they used for a coloring book page during the seminar.

She liked him so much, she’s getting a couple more, so expect to see a few more of her illustrations popping up in the coming weeks!

    And he was a huge hit for the seminar. I used him for an exercise where I asked participants to write down all the reasons they couldn’t do research. He collected them. We went on to more positive things. Then we took his grumpy notes out at the end to see if we had dealt with them.

    Thank you Amy.

    He was fun to draw, all grumpy and refusing to even consider things, I’m really glad he worked out well for your seminar. Next, the Grant Fairy! 😉
