Drawing Notes

6 Sep

Today I went to a symposium about practice-centred research in the arts. I jotted down quite a lot of the presentations and noticed that most of the delegates made entirely written notes. I’ve always combined writing with drawing when I’m taking down information as I find it far easier to remember and it’s much nicer to look at a few drawings interspersed with a bit of text, rather than pages and pages of hand writing. I also like to use different typography to make things stand out. Does anyone else do this? I was surprised that so few were doing it today in a roomful of arts practitioners.

I also like to do some quick portraits of the speakers – they’re not very accurate but it’s enough to jog my memory and remember what they were talking about.
