PRESENTATION: "Sequential Art in Science Communication" by David Clarke
The word "comics" might bring to mind well-thumbed copies of Scrooge McDuck, Spiderman, or the
newspaer's Sunday funny pages, but today sequential art is being used to communicate and teach
subjects such as science, medicine and history. David Clarke is creating comics about the history of
science. His first large scale project is a graphic novel of the voyage of "Captain" James Cook and
Joseph Banks to Tahiti for the Transit of Venus and their subsequent travels around the South
Pacific mapping New Zealand and the east coast of Australia. David will describe the development
process - what's involved - in creating a graphic novel.
David Clarke, former GNSI DC President, is the CEO of his own studio. He creates animations,
illustrations, comics and graphics and work with a small programming team to create interactive
learning objects for the university's online classrooms. He is an Adjunct faculty member of Northern
Virginia Community College and a multimedia/graphic artist at the University of Maryland University
College. He has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of design and an MFA from the Academy of Art
University, based in San Francisco.
