Hello, I'm Naomi. I'm
the weirdo behind Flatland, and other cartoony stuff (click
I started out as a biologist and
then got into building museum exhibits, science writing and
educational consulting. But I've always loved cartooning, ever
since I set eyes on my Dad's anthology of Walt Kelly's Pogo, and
then became obsessed with B.C., Calvin and Hobbes and most of
all, The Far Side (which I would take to school and read to my
physics teacher....okay, so I was a dork.)
Flatland was inspired by the critters
I met while working in Saskatchewan's prairie wilderness.
Of course, their names have been changed to protect their
privacy. I live and work in Toronto now, who knew I'd love
the downtown metropolis? There's no wilderness here, and I miss
the sky, but there is an annual zombie walk where 3000 people
dress up and lurch through the streets, which is pretty awesome.
