The Elements as Cartoon Characters [Picture Gallery]

36 Krypton

Kaycie D. is an illustrator and animator who decided that she’d do something particularly awesome for her senior thesis project at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. She decided to design characters for each of the elements in the periodic table, and she called it Elements: Experiments in Character Design.

Some of the characters are based on properties of the chemicals, others the story behind the name. I hope she eventually decides to bring them together in a grand webcomic – perhaps one that reflects the history of the founding of the periodic table?
