Kaycie D. calls her thesis project Elements – Experiments in Character Design. In order to complete it for her BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art, she completed a character design and factoid for each of the 112 named elements in the periodic table. And lest you think those elements have been written in stone, two elements that remained un-named when she finished her project in 2011 have been named since: Flerovium and Livermorium. With 112 drawings to choose from, it might not be surprising that it was hard to narrow them down to just a few for a post. But believe me, it was harder than even that. There’s some very cool designs in here, so you should definitely check out the tag page of her blog that features all of her elements.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
