Often in science communication, the fundamental challenge is how to extract the most valuable news or the most surprising findings that compel the audience to pay attention and sometimes act on it. And often words – even carefully chosen words – are not enough.

Frits Ahlefeldt (@HikingArtistCom) from Denmark creates compelling drawings to raise issues and explore how we can find new paths forward. I think his work is an excellent example of how visual depictions can help pinpoint issues. We need more of that in science! See a collection of his drawings here
