Artist Shout Out: Miss Diagnoses

The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) is having their annual conference right now. Lyme and tick born diseases are complicated and can be misdiagnosed for a host of reasons.

It is for that reason that I thought it would be the perfect time for me to pen a post that I had been thinking about for weeks. This is an artist I have followed and admired for a long time.

Vicki Novinsky at creates cartoon art that entertains and informs. She brings a lightheartedness to serious issues, making them more approachable. Vicki’s humor and style have allowed many in the Lyme and other chronic illness communities to relate and have a laugh over some small and some big frustrations that we run into.

Miss Diagnoses had wonderful, recent interviews published by and The Mighty. So if you are interested more in the story that led her to create these wonderful pieces, I encourage you to check out her blog and these articles.
