I took a trip to Wild Wings Inc to sketch the birds. Mac was not easy to draw he doesn’t hold still for long.
This infographic is intended to give the reader an overview of some of the factors that contribute to the evolution of resistant strains of staph, levels of MRSA resistance in the United States, and the rate at which new antibiotics are being approved for use. I am currently working on programming the finished interactive version of this that will allow the viewer to see data at the state level.

I did not have the time to make the visualization interactive but the images below show the different views of the data.

I am taking a online programming course through Edx because I am hoping to learn some programming skills so that I will be able to create more interactive work. The first project for the class was using Scratch a drag and drop programming language to create a game or an animation. My project was inspired by my friend’s dog’s hatred of skateboards.
