Little cartoon sharing at the end of the leap day (just for fun)

Everyone loves phdcomics, right? They even get included in Grad School workshop presentations…

Lately I’ve come to admire another source of grad student/ academic comments though: Have a look at A Prolific Source by Belle Kim, will you? I think you might enjoy it 🙂

Belle Kim’s cartoons are just lovely and they often strike a chord with me. I also like her approach that drawing can help you stay sane. It made me want to start, too. Now here is a very poor first draft. (I HAVE drawn other stuff recently but it’s too cute and non-academic; Chinese-style stickers from WeChat… and I have also jumped on that colouring book bandwagon). Anyway, not trying to do anything professional here, hence also just a cellphone picture, no scan. A really quick drawing to share an anecdote from the end of my leap day.

I am a research fellow on the CLiC Dickens project at the Centre for Corpus Research, University of Birmingham. My research interests focus on the use of corpus linguistic tools to identify meaning in texts. In the CLiC Dickens project we develop and use methods to study the language of literary texts, particularly in Dickens’s and other 19th century fiction. My PhD research seeks to understand connections in discourse through a corpus linguistic approach. Specifically, I study how the concept of surveillance is represented in different types of texts. This blog reflects my personal opinions and not those of my employers.
