At UTAOU, I was thrilled to have lots of drawing/learning experiences, including Dave Gray teaching the visual alphabet, Liz Burrow facilitating the development of the “signature person”, and Kevin Thorn demonstrating visual storytelling. And though I’ve been sketching more since, I’ve recently found something to up my game a little more: Draw Something.
This iPhone/Android app is similar to Pictionary; you choose one of three words to draw for a friend, draw it, and then they guess what you’ve drawn and draw something back.
It keeps me drawing — and, more importantly, thinking about how to visually represent ideas. And, of course, it’s fun. Still a bit buggy, but fun. Only 99 cents right now or ad-supported for free.
