The big earthquake in China last year in May had the Chinese cartoonist Coco Wang do some heart-touching graphics to tell the stories, that always follow an earthquake. Stories of death and miraculous survival. Can the fact-driven infographics artists learn anything from this?
You can see the entire series of earthquake strips (12 pieces) here
And read some more about the thoughts of the artist, Coco Wang: “I wanted to go to the front to help with all those people, some of my friends have already gone there, but I heard that the traffic needed to be kept totally clear for rescue transportation at the moment, people like me without knowledge of first-aid and experience of rescue operations going there now would cause choas and trouble… but I can’t just sit at home and do nothing, I have been crying my eyes out in the past three days, I have never felt more proud of my country and people… their love, courage and kindness rock me to my core! I have decided to tell these touching stories by drawing comics.”
