This experiential workshop takes place almost entirely at the drawing
surface. We’ll start the evening of July18th by warming up our drawing
muscles and silencing those pesky inner censors. The second day, we’ll
build into the basic practices of graphic facilitation and recording.
We will pay attention to preparation, the actual visual work, and
follow up including digital capture of paper based images. Our third
day will be devoted to participatory graphic approaches, practicing
and giving peer feedback. You can expect to go away with icons, ideas
and approaches which you can use immediately, as well as ideas about
how to hone your practice.

The Power of Networks – RSA Animate by Cognative Media

In Journal on May 26, 2012 at 10:55 am

Once again, Cognitive Media demonstrates why they are the pioneers of a whole new way of teaching complex concepts.

The amount of research and sheer visual ingenuity of their work redefines what is possible with the human hand.

I watch their videos at least twice — once with audio, once with only the visuals — to appreciate exactly how much planning, interpretation and technical production goes into every video.

For this video, CM also posted a video of the "Big Erase" showing that these creations really are a giant, complex, beautifully designed mural-sized drawing.

99% Conference Sketchnotes by Wendy MacNaughton

In Journal on May 14, 2012 at 1:43 pm
Wonderful cross-pollination of sketchnotes and journal pages, this event from the 99% Conference capture follows the tradition of clever illustrators such as Barry Blitt and Shel Silverstein


ILLUSTRATION: Wendy MacNaughton

Some people like words, some people like pictures. Illustrator Wendy MacNaughton is pretty darn great at both. Which is why we brought her in to document this year's 99% Conference. What follows is an illustrated inventory of her observations**, from the big-picture insights our speakers shared to the chatter & ideas that buzzed around the conference center for two days.

BTW, the 99% refers not to the famed protesters, but the percentage of perspiration required to bring the 1% inspiration to life.

**This is an abridged version. For the complete story with massive illustrations, view Wendy's recap on Behance.

The Monster Engine

In Journal on May 9, 2012 at 4:47 pm have I not heard of this before?!?

The Monster Engine is a book, a demonstration, lecture and a gallery exhibition by comic illustrator and artist Dave Devries

The premise for all three came from one single question: What would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted realistically?
