The original Professor Tipp was created by my father Win Mortimer in the early 1960’s as a comedy comic strip about the adventures and predicaments that Tipp got involved with.
I thought that it might be interesting to create a more modern Professor Tipp to explain in a fun and interesting way about new laboratory products and applications. Professor Tipp is a primary investigator at a major university and consultant to JDM Lab Solutions.
In the series, the original Professor Tipp will be her grandfather and we have created additional lab characters Dr. McNasty, Molly, Herman and Stella to help tell the stories.
The drawing is being done by Hailey Bair, a scholarship recipient of the Win Mortimer Trust for artists and is a junior at the Ringling College of Art and Design.
The first strip is about the Heliport thawing station and how it can save a lot of time thawing frozen samples.
Our intent is to produce a new strip about every two weeks on a new product or application.
I hope you enjoy them.
