- People who are highly creative often have odd thoughts and behaviors—and vice versa.
- Both creativity and eccentricity may be the result of genetic variations that increase cognitive disinhibition—the brain’s failure to filter out extraneous information.
- When unfiltered information reaches conscious awareness in the brains of people who are highly intelligent and can process this information without being overwhelmed, it may lead to exceptional insights and sensations.

I thought members of this community would be charmed and intrigued by this 3-generation crusade to establish and maintain a newspaper put out every day using hand calligraphy. This is just one more face of what we do.
The last handwritten newspaper in the world:
Sketchnotes use the same real-time skill of listening, synthesizing, and visualizing as graphic recording. The difference is that, with Sketchnotes, this process happens in a sketchbook rather than on a large scale where the audience experiences the process live. In both cases, the results live on digitally.
After a fantastic week working together on a Doodles in Motion project in NYC, Diane and I are excited open up registration for the flagship course for Alphachimp University…
Last week, we were testing the sign up process (thanks to you) before going live. Without announcing anything–and much to our surprise–we already have two students register for the course!Our first student, Joey in Chicago, found us on Google and registered before we even activated billing. Our second student, Brandy in South Carolina, signed up the moment we made mention on our blog. But we have lots of work to do. This week, we begin our pre-launch campaign in earnest. Here's the rough outline:
(2) Line up affiliate partners to promote the course and receive a percentage of the profits…
(3) Begin production of video content for all six modules…
(4) Setting up Google AdWord and Facebook Ad Campaigns…
(4) Trumpet to the world that pre-registration runs until May 19th!
The day of the launch, Alphachimp will be featured at a workshop with the Nashville chapter of ASTD (the American Society for Training & Development) to a captive audience of 100+ candidates for the course. see more >So as we ramp up for LAUNCH… here's how you can help: 1.

A group of adults meets regularly in a room at the Center for Advanced Medicine (CAM) at Washington University Medical Center to learn how to shade with charcoals, master watercolor strokes, and mold and shape clay. These students may be rediscovering art after many years or learning techniques for the first time. But they also share another common bond — battling cancer.
Do you have a story of how graphic facilitation has helped individuals and communities heal?
