Reminded of why we Picture People Plan.

Here our poster artwork travelled with Fei Yue Youth Go! to an international conference.

It’s been a long break from social media and thinking about WHY I do this work.

Is it, like so many claim, to make ideas look good? To enhance recall?

As much as we may expound on the benefits of working visually, it’s only as persuasive as warning a sugar-happy child of the dangers of too much candy.

Without VISION, people perish. Catching the vision is literally a matter of life and death. And when we do and help others to, it is life-giving!

Process Notes: Serial graphic recording at CHAT Work In Progress 2.0 forums

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Four months, four diptychs later, it’s a wrap!

Relished the opportunity to work on this series of candid conversations with CHAT. CHAT (Community Health Assessment Team)’s mission is to empower young adults to take charge of their mental health.

Along the way, I’ve been inspired by the testimonies of those in recovery. Also had fun experimenting with mixed media and approaches to drawing together ideas.

With multi-session work, it always seems easier to just adopt a “template” approach for “consistency.”

However, I’ve also found that continuity and developing certain themes/ approaches OVER TIME are just as — if not more — valuable. It’s being in the moment, with coherence in each diptych, yet movement across.

For me, it’s also been very introspective and reflective. One being, it is never too late to start taking charge of yourself. As a parallel, I picked up fine art skills over these months, and saw shifts in how I worked visually.

On Curiosity and Drawing: Reflections on Science Flair @ ArtScience Museum

By | Facilitation, Graphic Facilitation | No Comments

A visiting Art professor from the US said, “You Singaporeans don’t know how blessed you are to have the ArtScience Museum.” She visited recently and was blown away by the exhibits.

Maybe we’re kind of comfortable with what we have and where we are in, that it takes the child-like curiosity of foreign visitors to tell us that we’ve got it not just good, but great.

“What I cannot create, I do not understand.”

By | Graphic Facilitation, Graphic Recording | No Comments

Recently I got to visit the new #AllPossiblePathsASM exhibition, which celebrates Richard Feynman’s Curious Life.

One thing Feynman was known for were his Feynman Diagrams. These are simple drawings made up of straight and wriggly lines that visualise complex particle physics.

Just a couple of lines. Really simple rules. It will probably take you a minute or two to learn to draw one, even if you do not know physics.

We often like to think of drawing out ideas on the fly as challenging, but really, it is only as difficult as understanding the conversation.

And once we have understood, we can help others make sense by making seen.

What we cannot draw out, we do not understand. Never mind the artistry, which is a topic for another day. 😉

Processing the process of drawing together — Asian Undergraduate Summit 2018

By | Graphic Facilitation, Graphic Recording | No Comments

Recently I was back at my alma mater to capture conversations on creating inclusive spaces. It was the Asian Undergraduate Summit 2018. Over one hundred undergraduates from nine different universities across Asia had come together to create inclusive spaces for conversation.

It got me thinking about how I was drawing together the conversations.

Making the most of your graphic recordings: Three Tips

By | Graphic Facilitation, Graphic Recording | No Comments

Serendipity. Recently, I spotted one of our largest murals remixed by the Client to fit onto one canteen wall. Of course, I had to take a photograph and share that! 🙂

Although the original (measuring 18m x 2m) had to be dismantled at the end of the two-day event where it was created, it was heartening to see that the conversations continued.

What are some ways you as the Client can make the most out of your graphic recordings? And what would you, as a Visual Practitioner, need to do to enable that?
