So I've been creating a weekly comic for the Familial Dysautonomia Foundation (which I haven't posted in awhile here, but they always post it on their facebook). This Sunday is FD Day, a conference for people and families affected by the condition, but it's also open to the public if you're curious! They'll have a lot of NYU doctors talking about new research, treatments, and other stuff. I'll be there sketching for the kids in a room with other fun stuff like a magician and balloon animals.
Here are some FD comics to catch up on - No Tears: Life With FD.
On this comic, the Foundation and I were trying to come up with good places for the group of people to be in - what if the grumpy old man was a bus driver? No, some FD people have difficulty getting on buses. What if he was a barber, or at a movie ticket counter? Those were ok, but I came up with something I encounter regularly: grumpy people at the checkout lane :)
