Our 2021 student colloquium was the first BHPC colloquium to be held entirely online via Zoom, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it was also the first to feature an artist-in-residence, Jojo Karlin. She captured the event in the illustrations posted here. We liked her work so much that we invited her back to illustrate our 2022 colloquium. Jojo’s work can also be found on her website (, and on Twitter and Instagram (@jojokarlin).
