Who is Maki Naro?

Maki is an award-winning illustrator who, since 2010, has been consistently producing a body of work which he would classify as, “fan art for science.”  His comics appear online in publications such as The Nib and Popular Science, where he guides readers through a variety of complex topics, with implications that often extend beyond that of just science, and into social and cultural issues.

Once upon a time, Maki was a finalist on the hit Penny Arcade reality web series, Strip Search. He has since squandered his fame and fortune drawing really bad pictures of Totoro.
