Graphic Recording

What is a graphic record?

Graphic records are drawings of the main themes emerging from events and meetings.  Having these drawings makes it easier and more fun to relay stories about what unfolded.

Most people are visual learners. These pictures are used to bring greater understanding back to communities and groups.  They can be recorded as videos, used as murals, and photographed for social media, websites and reports.

Canadian Mountain Network Virtual Board Retreat

Format: Scrolling story

I drew this story narrative using my scrolling "graphic wall" to scale the image size for online visibility.  In this case, I appeared as a guest in a ZOOM meeting so participants could watch me work as they chose. This is an excerpt of my event summary.
