Project Abstract

The Sonoran Desert is one of the most richly-populated and biodiverse deserts in the world, but not everyone knows that. By creating a graphic novel on the natural history of the Sonoran Desert, children especially can learn more about the environment that surrounds them in an educational and entertaining format. The Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum cares for a vast array of Sonoran flora and fauna, as well as plenty of knowledgeable people. I am interning at their education department, learning about the wildlife myself from the docents and artistic life studies while assisting with education and maintenance myself. Through this, I can learn more about the process of creating an educational work and creating an educational comic.
