A Collection of Comics to Inspire Others at Christmas

OK so we dropped the ball on sending our newsletter out last month—we've been so flat out creating videos and scribing workshops for our amazing clients.   

However, now we're back with a better-than-ever issue of Feelin' Sketchy, and this time round we're showcasing an amazing collection of comics by a Melbourne-based artist that may just be the stocking stuffer you're after as we get closer to Christmas.

3 Steps To Better Health

We've worked with a lot of clients in the health space, and we love being part of campaigns that have a real impact on making people healthier.

When we created the Three Steps to Better Health video for a Health Network in Western Sydney, we had no idea that so many other organisations would want to use the video for their own educational purposes. Check it out!

Could your organisation benefit from a similar video? We'd love to help you get your message out there. Get in touch!


Zen Pencils: Comics of Inspiring Quotes

Over the last few years, fellow Melburnian visual artist Gavin Aung Than has carved out a massive following via his popular comic blog, Zen Pencils.

Gavin takes inspiring quotes from famous people throughout history, and turns them into compelling comic strips, meanwhile adding in extra layers and personality via his own interpretations of the quote. His success was cemented this week with the launch of his second book, Dream The Impossible Dream. It's a compilation of some of the best comics from his blog (as well as an original comic written by Gavin himself). If you're looking for a Christmas present that will inspire its recipient, I heartily recommend you grab yourself a copy.

The Big Draw

The world's biggest drawing festival is on this month! Thousands of enjoyable, and mainly free, drawing activities connect people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists, designers, illustrators—and each other.


The Aesthetics & Ethics of Visual Storytelling

A great panel in which 3 veteran visual storytellers, graphic recorders and graphic facilitators, share their methodologies and philosophies at the IFVP's AustinTX 2015 Conference.


Orphan's Tree Whiteboard Animation

Lovely video from the guys at TruScribe for the Orphan's Tree foundation, who are doing great work stepping in and supporting vulnerable young people in a transition period.


I'm very fortunate to be teaching sketching workshops in New Zealand, the Gold Coast, and Sydney next month. Perhaps I'll avoid some of Melbourne's notoriously erratic November weather.
