Skepticblog » The Dunning-Kruger Effect


  There has been a lot of research into why the Dunning-Kruger effect is so common and what drives it. It mostly boils down to a cognitive bias related to confirmation bias (seeing only what we want to see, and ignoring the misses). In the case of the Dunning-Kruger effect, the bias is one where we cannot believe that we are wrong or less intelligent than others, so we have an artificially inflated sense of self-esteem.

Cover illustration for issue 2 of Steve Niles' Criminal Macabre: The Third Child. This one was so much fun to work on. The issue description mentioned Cal dropping a werewolf from the sky, and it made me laugh out loud. I knew that one of the concepts I sent in needed to feature this, and I was very happy to learn that the editors at Dark Horse and Steve agreed with me. While illustrating it I would occasionally chuckle to myself, and make Cal's face a little more gleeful and the werewolf's face more shocked and terrified which would only make me laugh more. There's a preview of the issue over at http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=preview&id=23720!

Just over 5 years ago, I launched my first Kickstarter project. Just over 5 minutes ago, I launched a new one.
It’s a small experimental thing — today I’ll write and draw an 8-page comic in 8 hours. Want one? Details here.
Thanks!

Awww yeahs!
