Why did you participate in LUX:plorations?
“It seemed like an amazing idea to illustrate science with comics! It makes it way easier for young people to understand in a funnier and more entertaining way.”
What did you like most about LUX:plorations?
“The fact that science, which seems difficult at first, can actually be simplified in an easier way that anyone can understand. I think the whole team did a great job on all the different stories :)”
What was the biggest challenge for you?
“Understanding the science part so that I could actually illustrate it correctly – if I would have failed to understand and illustrate it accurately, of course it would’ve been difficult for the readers to understand it, too. It was especially challenging with the Maryam Mirzakhani comic, where the concept seemed so difficult to grasp at first. The challenge here was really understanding some more difficult concepts, making them approachable and appealing to the general public.”
