Rosemary Mosco, Science Communicator and Naturalist
Location: Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum
Science and conservation are serious endeavors. But sometimes you just need a laugh. Rosemary Mosco, a nature cartoonist and science communicator with a keen wit, will share some of her science-based comics, sure to make you guffaw. She’ll talk about how you can use art and writing to support conservation and speak about her process of developing a cartoon, from concept through research, wordsmithing, to sketch-up and final design. See her work at Bird and Moon Science and Nature Cartoons.
Rosemary has created acclaimed cartoons, served in communications roles for groups such as NPS and Mass Audubon, written for nature publications, and led unique nature walks. Her graphic novel, Solar Systems, comes out via First Second Books in 2018.
