The right cartoon can change the world

It is said that an image is worth a thousand words, and that emotions help people retain information.

In my conservation career I've had to use the conventions of science to communicate about nature: graphs, technical reports, data tables.

These do not command the attention of children, or indeed the great majority of adults.

Yet it is precisely with children and adults who are not necessarily devout conservationists that I want to communicate with; if I want to enhance knowledge, shift attitudes and change behaviours, what is the use of preaching to the choir?

For this reason I create educational comics and cartoons. The idea is to learn while having a laugh.

Check out my site and let me know what you think - I'd love to hear from you!

I'm working on the sequel to my last book, The Adventures of Polo the Bear: a Story of Climate Change.

The second book in the series will be called The Adventures of Captain Polo: Pole to Pole!

Stay tuned to see the progress to launch date!

Polo to Pole
  • Progress to launch



My growing collection of cartoons exists to facilitate information and knowledge about things I care a lot about, such as the natural environment and human well being.

Comic Books

My comic books range from a collection of simple comic strips with messages to complete fiction and non-fiction graphic novels. They all contain detailed technical information on environmental and broader development issues but are presented as fun, easy-to-read comic stories.


The orginal comic book, 'The Adventures of Polo the Bear: a Story of Climate Change' is also available as 3 separate ebooks
