Hello from Beantown! I’m here at the Materials Research Society Annual Meeting (, a three-day convention that brings together researchers, authors, and companies in the materials science and technology fields. I have had the honor of sketching at this annual event for the past 6 years and am always ecstatic to be called back. The long lines of attendees waiting for their caricature always leave me feeling like the star of the show.

I do have an ulterior motive to coming to the MRS Annual Meeting every year, though. I LOVE the city of Boston, Mass. Whether it be taking in the sites on Boylston St., ordering the curry chicken at Lir (try it – you’ll love it), or shopping at the Prudential Center, there is no shortage of fun options here. Of course, my favorite thing to do when I’m here is to draw. So, thank you to my friends at MRS for letting me do what I love in a place that I love year after year.
