In video on June 14, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Jennell King describes the technical and emotional challenges of creating a time-lapse scribing video.

Folks have been asking about production processes for these types of videos.  I recently did one for the Ken Blanchard Companies, and for such a simple-looking product, it's actually a fairly complex process.  Here's how this eight-minute video was created, and what it was like to do it.

How to Write Like an Architect

In this video from the series How to Architecht, Doug Patt demonstrates how to architect with the basic drafting tools for an architect when working by hand: a parallel rule, a t-square, and an Ames lettering guide to create the lines for the lettering. 

Although this is a controlled tabletop activity, the principles apply to graphic recording. Doug's advice: "I'd say the most important thing to remember about hand lettering is that your letters need to seem animated while still appearing orderly and neat. I think this is achieved by using a few conventions."

When I asked him what happens in my brain while I listen and draw images to capture ideas on large surfaces, he replied: “Why, your whole brain is lit up like a Christmas tree!”

Charles Limb is a doctor and a musician who researches the way musical creativity works in the brain.

He wondered how the brain works during musical improvisation — so he put jazz musicians and rappers in an fMRI to find out. What he and his team found has deep implications for our understanding of creativity of all kinds.
