MPI/ILEA One Workshop 2018

One week ago today I was up in Calgary at the MPI/ILEA “One Workshop”. It was an all-day event, with five speakers. Following are a few pictures from the event. Captured by Suzan McEvoy from Photos With Finesse. I sent the pages off to be scanned. (there are not many places with scanners big enough to do the job.) I should have the digital files soon…

Also, Suzans camera flash makes everything look bright, but it was a little darker at the back of the room, so I brought my LED clip lamps. I picked out LEDs because I didn’t want to bake my scalp under anything that would have put out heat.

Posing in the first picture with me is Kim Orlesky. She was the first speaker and wanted a picture with the finished piece. I had already taken it down and was about to roll it, So we just held it up instead of putting all my green clips back on it. The middle three pictures are all from the same piece. My favourite piece was the last speaker of the day, which you can see in the picture at the bottom, partially completed.

Explainer Graphics

So I’m not entirely sure what to call this. It is related to Graphic Recording, but it isn’t done “live in front of the studio audience”. Until I have an industry name for it I’m just going to call it an Explainer Graphic.

For this piece (there are two others that go with it, but I’m just posting the one for now) I met with Volunteer Lethbridge and discussed what they do as an organization. I took notes and then came home and made a rough draft. Then discussed it again with Volunteer Lethbridge. This back and forth feedback allowed us to really refine the information contained in the graphic. When we were ¬†happy with it I inked the image on regular 8.5×11 paper. After scanning it into the computer I added the dotted lines, the X and the additional text.

After delivery, the client had it printed onto those roll-up banners that you see at trade shows. They use it to help them illustrate/explain their processes to clients/partners/volunteers.

I think my favorite bit is the guy climbing over the wall.
