Creating comics with Rosemary Mosco
Naturalist Rosemary Mosco, creator of Bird and Moon comics, blends science and humor to create critically acclaimed comics and books that portray the often-hilarious behavior of birds and wildlife. Her award-winning work has appeared in many publications including Audubon and Nature Ecology & Evolution. Her quirky comics are helping to engage a new generation of enthusiastic birders. Join us for an afternoon of fun on September 26 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and learn to combine science, art, and humor while you create your own comic. Rosemary was originally to be the keynote speaker at the popular Wings Over Willapa Festival, which is now postponed until September 2021. She has agreed to give a Zoom presentation to talk about her work and interpreting the humor in nature and wildlife. The workshop is a gift to the public from the Friends of Willapa National Wildlife Refuge in appreciation for all they have done in caring about birds, our refuge, and the incredible natural habitat we share.
