Who Are You Calling Yarn-for-Brains? (Is it This Yarn Brain?)

Braaaaiiiinnnnns

Psychiatrist Dr. Karen Norberg knit this atomically accurate brain that is now on display at the Boston Museum of Science because she felt that knit yarn could best convey the wrinkly ripply nature of our brains. There’s even a functional zipper that connects the two lobes! You can read more about how and why she made it at the The Telegraph.

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.
