Pictures vs. words

Pictures are more powerful than words alone when you want to create clarity and alignment with your audience.

Tiny tiny trip through time

Photo of a Zelda zine

Stumbled on this awesome zine depicting The Legend of Zelda from 1998 by Andrew Kolb.

Each artist was tasked with creating a zine to celebrate a year between 1984 and 2014. One of my favourite video games was released in my assigned year, 1998, so I opted to focus on that.

Download the PDF of the entire zine.

The web as a promotion tool

If you treat the web as a promotion tool, then it’s a chore; but if you treat it as a platform, if you say, “I’m not using Instagram to promote, I’m using it just to show what I’m doing, I’m just showing my sketches and I’m opening my studio to you.” That’s not really promotion — you’re just flipping the idea of a studio visit inside-out.

Awesome example of learning by making something (rather than reading or watching and then doing a quiz). In this case learning WebGL. Made by Valentine Marmonier
