Some news about the book!
First of all, sorry for the lack of news these last weeks. I had no idea what I could show you as the areas in which I advanced were not so much visual ones.
Still I hope to give you a little insight. I’ll try to improve my communication the next weeks 🙂 (more…)
I realize some people arrive here and all they have is some old news about the Kickstarter of the Fieldworkfail Book. Waiting to make proper news, maybe I could at least present the project in a few words:
Thank a lot for all your support, energy, ideas and feedback, for helped me by spreading the word about this book, among many other things! (more…)
Wow!!! Since yesterday, it’s raining backers, so not only we reached four digit but with 1050 we’re getting closer as well to the 1080 final stretch goal!!
To thank you properly for all your support, I promised a surprise for the 1000 milestone (beyond the spanish version now available!). Here it is.
My very talented friend Geoffroy Moneyron, animator and storyboard artist, had the great idea to animate one of the fieldwork fails. He chose the story of Aditya Gangadharan and made an amazing work transforming the illustration into an animated short!
(sorry, no sound for now… I hope to make a version with sound later!)
If you’re interested by Geoffroy’s work, please follow his tumblr!
Thanks all of you for helping to reach this great step!!!
Remember the Rhino fieldworkfail? Here are some #Rhinofacts, with the help of Gayle Pedersen:

We continue with Anne the serie of questions !
Where were you at this moment?
I was in Serengeti National Park [in Tanzania] working as a research assistant for the Serengeti Cheetah project. One of the aims of the project was to find out which male cheetahs fathered cubs. To do so we collected the poop of as many cheetahs as possible to get their DNA.
What drove you to this field ?
I’ve always loved animals, and being able to be in the wild and watch and puzzle over animal behavior is what attracted me to field biology.
Did #Fieldworkfail had any impact on your professional life ?
#fieldworkfail makes small talk with other biologists so much easier. Whenever a awkward pause threatens to emerge, I just ask them for their best #fieldworkfail story. Works especially well with senior scientists because they tend to have a lot of stories.
