Joel Hickerson (Offsite Link)
Austin illustrator and cartoonist Joel Hickerson got his start in visual learning as “Frenchy,” the how-to-draw artist on a PBS kids show in the 1990s. Joel illustrated much of the Concepts Unwrapped series for Ethics Unwrapped. He has since worked more and more on the white board while developing a better understanding of the power this type of visual communication has on audiences.
