Educational Comic Series

In March 2019, I launched an educational comic series based on the name and values of the firm. Titled “Planning with Emie & Ollie,” the comic series follows Emily the Egret and Oliver the Ox as they learn about social justice issues within the realm of urban planning. The intent of the comic series is not to raise any new issues but give voice to them in a creative means.

COMICS INVENTORY

The comics inventory below is presented in chronological order and includes all comics shared so far, except for the most recent ones. All comics are initially presented on Egret+Ox’s social media streams — including Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram — and then will be uploaded here. The inventory allows for jumping back and forth between the inventory list and each set of comics (grouped by week).
