Congratulations! You have reached the former SCIENCE AND INK archive of largely-satisfactory-with-some-exceptions science and general cartoons, created by Nick D Kim. Cartoons in this archive are still free for educational and personal use, and (over time) appeared online under headings Strange Matter, Lab Initio, and Nearing Zero, among others. These are the survivors. To help you find your way:

science and ink greyscale book

Print format: cartoons on this site are also available as a 334-page book, but you'd have to pay for that. In print format there's a choice - you can have inexpensive greyscale, or glorious but much more expensive colour: greyscale edition, colour edition, Kindle e-book. In print format we'd go for greyscale.

Permissions and free use: use of cartoons from this site is free for personal, non-profit, research, and educational purposes - websites, lab-manuals, newsletters or any conventional publication - as outlined in this handy document. If your use is in one of those categories and/or you've previously sought and received permission, that free-use permission right continues indefinitely. Commercial use: For publishers (etc.) seeking commercial rights, a subset of these cartoons are available for either sale or rent over here at CartoonStock.



What's next? In August 2021 we'll be launching a new site, featuring themed collections of both new and remastered cartoons. Lookout for [the new site shall be called]...
