It’s come to my attention, from hundreds of status updates, photos, news, and social media, that Pokemon Go is a thing. I had a patron request that I draw pokemon “…because Pokemon Go!” So! here is a Ponyta checking out a ‘lure’ - Tried out animating in Photoshop for once instead of Flash…SO. DIFFERENT.

Meet Girl in STEM Hannah Herbst ,award-winning inventor
I created several iterations of an ocean energy probe, designed to bring energy to impoverished communities in sub-Saharan Africa. There, over 70% of people live in energy poverty.
What is energy poverty?
People are either too poor to afford electricity, or they can afford it but don’t have access to energy- either because of their situation or social status.
How long did it take to invent this?
It took me two years to create the three iterations. I tested them all with permission from the Coast Guard in the Boca Raton inlet. Now that it’s tested, what are the next steps to getting it in use to help people?
Right now, I’m making a website to open source my invention, so anyone can build them. I’m also making kits of the prototypes so people can actually make them in classrooms.
You guys like process gifs, right? Here’s one for the Sci-fi noir poster “IT CAME FROM FUKUSHIMA!” with some tester typography thrown up top. Per usual, sorry this is “draw a circle, draw the rest of the owl” thing. I apparently don’t think to take screenshots very often.
