A few months back we were contacted by Dr Johanna Kerch from the University of Göttingen in Germany looking for some cartoony help.
Dr Kerch wanted a cartoon produced that she could use in her slides as part of her lectures on ice grain recrystallisation and how they deform and re-form into polycrystals. She very kindly sent us some ice core images and a request that there had better be cute faces.
The above took a few versions. For starters the polar bear was once a penguin (wrong continent) and the cute faces weren’t nearly cute enough. But after we googled cute polar bears and brought in a nine-year-old cute face specialist we managed to produce the final version above.
Please do get in touch with Dr Kerch and ask her all about ice crystallisation, I’m sure she’d be more than happy to explain it and why it’s so important!
Also if you’re interested in having a custom cartoon made please do get in touch via our contact page and we’ll see what we can do for you.
