The Right Brain

You'd think, based on my cartoons, that I believe the stereotype of the nerdy, left-brained engineer with thick glasses and no social skills. I do not, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy poking fun at them and everyone else in the construction industry. 

I have met engineers who resemble the stereotype, but the best engineers I know have a healthy balance of both left-brained technical smarts and right-brained creativity.  My own brain scan is included above (Figure 4) for your reference.

I created the first Right Brain cartoon for the inaugural edition of Wright Engineers' monthly news in February 1999.  Each issue since featured an industry-related cartoon .
