About me
Founder and Creative Director of Cooked Illustrations. Multidisciplinary writer, illustrator, entrepreneur, and storyteller, often with feet on different continents, and hands in many pies. Both literally and figuratively. Ian grew up around tropical biologists and archaeologists, which planted a lifelong interest in the anthropogenic environment. Over time, he’s become fascinated with how scientific research can be disseminated through arts and how research can become culture. Originally a reportage illustrator on field expeditions, Ian noticed that there is a niche need for engaging and jocular science communication that goes beyond graphs and textbooks and truly tries to answer the question of how humans learn. Current research: How stories can help us learn? How to create effective and affective visual learning material?
