Graphic Recording

Tired of audiences with glazed eyeballs who have trouble remembering what they've just heard? If so, there's a new service from Cartoon Impact--graphic recording.  Graphic recording, also called scribing, is a visual way to record and facilitate speaking events and meetings. First popularized on the West Coast, graphic recording has been growing in popularity in the U.S. and internationally. Graphic recorders work live, as the event happens, capturing key points and information with a combination of text and images. The technique has a lot of benefits. Working graphically is efficient and effective – as such it saves time, money and aggravation. Comprehension increases, participation increases, the quality of decision-making tends to increase. Working visually helps people more effectively see their circumstances, understand themselves and one another. And the finished pieces are a fantastic way to share the event on social media.

Graphic recording can make your next training or seminar more effective and exciting. Call 215-384-3575 or send an email to find out more.

Video Storyboards and Illustrations

During the second half of last year, I worked with Kates Media and Germantown Studios to create a series of 25 animated instructional videos for medical students for the company Davis Advantage. As a storyboard artist and illustrator for the videos that used a whiteboard style, I helped define the series' visual style. It was a big project involving lots of metaphorical depictions of diseases, both challenging and a lot of fun. It was also a chance to do drawings specifically for animation, and I was very happy with the results. I'd love to do more of this sort of thing, so if you make videos, let's talk!

I'm including a cartoon in each newsletter for recipients to enjoy and use for no cost. Just click the link for a 300dpi jpeg you can copy to your desktop. All I ask is that you don't get rid of the web URL or signature. And if you thanked Cartoon Impact in a caption, that'd be nice, too. You can see more free cartoons here.
