I’ve been doing some DIY instructional comics! This is a new kind of drawing work for me, and it’s been very interesting. I get to learn while drawing!
My sister, Phoebe, who lives down in the Patagonia region of Chile, asked me to illustrate a handout about Vermicomposting, or Lombricultura in Spanish.

This year she did a workshop on integrating compost, planting in vertical gardens, and eco-bricks into the classroom. Here are a few of the drawings I did for the handout:
