Frozen lab

Several of my cartoons fit under the theme of ‘In a real lab…’ The idea works two ways: to show how mundane things in a lab can be, despite the wonders of science. In return to take some of the slightly absurd routines and even superstitions of the lab and apply them to popular culture or the world at large.

Don’t worry the ice machine will be fixed soon.

Ice machines are one of the most crucial pieces of equipment in any biology lab. Rather than cubes, they make a slush of small chunks which you then sit your tubes in to keep them cool and stop the contents degrading, just as Elsa is doing here with Olaf. While they work, everyone takes them completely for granted but the minute they break (usually when you are doing some critical, once-in-a-blue-moon type experiment) all hell breaks loose.

You can’t buy this from my RedBubble store because some Disney bot made them make me take it down for copyright infringement. That’s a load of crap because this is parody and allowed under European law (at least it did at the time need to check what applies after the Brexit fiasco?!?!). Anyway, I can’t be bothered to fight it and RedBubble do me a favour hosting all my designs but if you want a high-res copy let me know.
