Scientists are awesome! by David Maclennan

Maclennan on his project:

I have to admit I didn’t really choose according to who has made the greatest contribution to science, I just went for three scientists who were fun to draw. They are as follows: Anna Fisher: astronaut and chemist, and the first mother in space. Nikola Tesla: genius, inventor, electric wizard and owner of a very fine mustache. Max Planck: father of quantum theory.
