I might be over doing the “I’m so excited to _____” announcements lately, but seriously, I am so excited to get around to posting this work onto this blog.
For one my first paid paintings since high school, I got to paint a designer I admire’s slide deck. You can check out all 24 paintings and the talk on Medium.
I’m a fairly speedy painter, but I found that I had to approach like I did my UX work: in iterations. The first 2 revs were very much like my sketchnotes, which are fantastic since those are done realtime. However, for a deck, was much too sloppy of a format. The more colorful, polished watercolors struck the balance of polished, while not trying too hard, and quick to convey the content. For any talk, what’s most important is what the speaker had to say. /preach
Slides are up on Speaker Deck!
Video forthcoming. Thank you to all the co-workers, friends, and strangers who came out last night to hear us speak. So incredibly honored.
“Can I see the insides of your sketchbook?” Now you can. Kind of. Photographs!
Eric Reiss’ talk two Thursdays ago. P.S. There’s an IXDA series, UX in Space next Wednesday @ Trulia’s 9th floor rooftop penthouse. All 8 talks from DxFSF.
In < 24 hours, I illustrated 9 talks.
Thinking about it makes my right hand pulsate a bit.
