Watching Steve’s lectures, I just have to say this.
Illustration is amazingly useful when teaching / explaining / presenting / convincing.
I’ve held a firm belief that I cannot to learn to illustrate because I don’t think visually. I am realizing I’ll have to overcome it soon. It’s just too good a skill to pass over.
Here are some amazing examples of illustration skill tremendously improving teaching or presentation. I strongly recommend clicking all links:
Why’s (Poignant) Guide to Ruby by code poet “Why the lucky stiff”
Sketchnotes by graphic designer Mark Rohd.
“Bugs and Battleships” by Edward Z. Yang
“Starting Forth” by programmer/author Leo Brodie
Steve Blank (expected, wasn’t it?)
