RSA Animate[edit]

Andrew Park created the original concept and design for the RSA Animate cartoon series that has transferred the contents of RSA speeches and books to the medium of (hand-drawn) cartoon animations.

The first whiteboard animation drawn by Andrew Park in the RSA Animate series was based on Stein Ringen's Book, "The Economic Consequences of Mr Brown" given as a speech delivered for RSA.

The most recently drawn is based on a 500-page book by psychiatrist Iain McGilchrist on the topic of the divided (human) brain.

Other notable work[edit]

Andrew Park was chosen by Bill Gates to illustrate his Gates Foundation lecture on the power of vaccines.
