This is the end result from my latest time lapse video (sneak peek coming soon!) 🖍
Likes: -I really like my Mac computer 😊
-You can’t tell this from this photo, but I’m proud of myself for doing this one at the wall *without* putting any sketch marks up there first, which has been my protocol up til now. I *did* do a lot of sketching at a smaller scale to work out concepts, icons, how to draw Steve Jobs and Jonas Salk, etc, but I did NOT do a scale draft before jumping in. And I am very proud of myself for making the attempt without getting stalled by perfectionism! 🖍
Why? Because when graphic recording or graphic facilitating, you don’t have TIME to get perfectionistic!! You don’t have the luxury for that!! You have to throw some marks down and MOVE ON! If I can’t do that in the privacy of my own home, how can I possibly expect to do it with an audience???
Which brings me to…
Wishes: -I wish this composition came out more balanced. The upper left corner feels like the icons are floating in space, lost, about to float away! -I wish my lettering (especially my title lettering) were more consistent. I have a tendency to drift downward, and the size of my letters also drifts! “Steve Jobs” bears little relationship to “Jonas Salk” 😂 Part of this is the challenge of writing low down on the sheet, which is uncomfortable. But it’s also my general lack of consistency… 🙄
-I wish I’d written “curiosity” larger on the door, and made the “creativity” figure a tad less hidden, as they are both hard to read.
A great jazz singer, Sheila Jordan, once told me in a workshop I took from her, “Every performance is a rehearsal for the next performance.” And so it is with graphic charts: every one is a rehearsal for the next one. 😊 If you make a note of your Likes and Wishes (thanks to @malgosiakostecka for this lovely paradigm), youcant help but improve!
