A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to work for a company that makes high-tech instruments that can detect the exact chemicals that make up a specific material by simply pointing the instrument towards the source. Wow! That's the kind of wacky stuff you see in comic books, right?
Apparently, the marketing department for the TruDefender instrument thought the same thing and hired me to illustrate a comic strip showcasing the instrument's newest feature: text messaging. Hazmat teams often have trouble communicating the results of the chemical tests to their Incident Commander (I.C.) who is not in Hazmat gear and away from the danger zone. This frustrating communication problem must be solved by having the Hazmat officer go through the decon process, take off his suit, and physically show the results to his I.C.... until now! Now, the Hazmat officer can simply text the instrument's results to his I.C. saving time and energy.
What an exciting project to be a part of. Here is the final strip with pencils and inks below:
