You have already worked on a number of very different projects. Is there something that always stays the same?! And something that made the BrainLinks-Braintools conference special?
What remains the same is the challenge to work out a new scientific topic, to understand it and to make it an exciting story. I learn something new with every comic book, every theme, every project. It's always like this and at the same time the best thing about my job. I myself studied biology in Freiburg. And it was really great to return to my old university after 10 years with a completely new approach. I also liked the interdisciplinary nature of the event. Despite the neurobiological focus, topics such as philosophy, communication and art were also addressed. The open and positive reaction of the "scientific world" to the graphic recording was of course also nice and shows me that there is a lot of potential in this combination.
Veronika Mischitz is a graduate biologist and works full-time as a freelance illustrator and comic-strip artist. She became known with "Klar Soweit?", a science comic, which she has been designing and drawing monthly for the Helmholtz Association since 2014. Since then, she has been involved in a large number of projects dealing with the communication of knowledge about graphic design. For example, at "Wissensbuffet","Suddenly Knowledge" and "Science in Dialogue". More about Veronika Mischitz and her work can be found here and here.
