When I was in high school (and all the way through grad school), I illustrated my class notes (I also taught my students to do the same thing). The doodles helped me to remember the content and pass my exams. In the recent 99% conference, they had some artists illustrate their conference key notes… I was so excited to see the Illustrated Takeaways! Totally worth checking out!
A little bit about The 99 Percent: ”The 99% is Behance’s research arm and think tank. Taking its name from Thomas Edison’s famous quote that ‘genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration,’ the 99% includes a daily web magazine, an annual conference, and the best-selling book Making Ideas Happen. Through articles, tips, videos, and events, we share best practices that help creative professionals move beyond idea generation into idea execution.”
