PhDcartoon transforms research concepts and projects into concrete designs and illustrations. I will be adding animated explainer videos to this list soon. I have been drawing and sketching ever since was able to hold a pencil.  Still amazed at the power of art to communicate ideas into something tangible for people to engage with. Browse through the site to learn more about PhDcartoon, and what it can do for you.
