Now you can read Words and Numbers in ISRF Bulletin 6: Power, on ISSUU. You'll find the comic on page 12 with a short introduction by Rachael Kiddey.

She had noticed how graphic storytelling in an academic context can be put to use in Places People Stories, a conference publication in the form of a comic book by myself and Petter Hanberger for the Linnaeus University. After some discussion we decided to work together, Rachael writing a script and me drawing. It worked very well I think.
I will post more on this after the bulletin is published.
No new posts in a long time. So I better recapitulate some parts of the process.

I'm making a frame out of 12 mm beech plywood. It will make the mold sturdier and it won't flex when we start to pack the concrete.
Fixing the frame to the cured fiberglass mold using epoxy mixed with filler, then reinforcing on both sides with strips of fiberglass and epoxi resin.

This is the almost finished mould. To do now is some sanding and building a frame attached to the mold. The frame will make the mold more rigid which is necessary when working with concrete. The finished stars will be heavy, about, 75 kg and it will probably take some force to get the finished casts out of the mold so it must be strong.
