Spend only R2500 per day for Roy’s sketchnoting this Black Friday! And… every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday till the end of February 2018! (My normal daily rate is R23 000. So you’re saving big!)

So you’ve got a year-end function. Your people are tired. You want them to engage with the material you’re presenting. Or you’re planning something for early 2018. People are just coming back from leave. What you need is a live sketchnoter. A visual facilitator who will make the words come to life, so that people can easily see your point. That sketchnoter is me. I work digitally, on a big screen. I’m interactive. Delegates get digital copies of my pictures at the end of the…Continue Reading “Spend only R2500 per day for Roy’s sketchnoting this Black Friday!

#CreativeMornings — @Trevor_Stuurman — #Death — Nov 2017 — #Sketchnotes by @RoyBlumenthal

Trevor Stuurman talked about how death provides opportunities to find blessings and lessons. I was in the front row at VEGA, making this sketchnote on my Wacom Mobile Studio Pro. As always, I’m available to live sketchnote YOUR next event. I charge R22k per day, but my Thursdays are subject to insane price-gouging… I have a "Roy’s Thursday Deal Day" going, where you get me for R2500 for the whole day. Take advantage. It’s a first-come-first-pay-first-served basis. Whoever books me and pays for the gig…Continue Reading “#CreativeMornings — @Trevor_Stuurman — #Death — Nov 2017 — #Sketchnotes by @RoyBlumenthal”

My background preproduction template for this Friday’s @CreativeMornings talk on DEATH by @Trevor_Stuurman (Instagram handle). @welovenicework #jhb_cm #creativemornings #sketchnotes

Had some time this afternoon. So I spent some of it making this template for this coming Creative Mornings event. Normally, I do all of this on the day. But heck… might as well use the gap to do something with a bit of pre-thought. (As always, I’m available to do live sketchnoting at your next event.

#SketchNotes @BenjaminFelis is running his Visualization Techniques workshop in Joburg

I feel privileged to have been invited to add my touch to Benjamin’s drawing workshop. He’s been teaching beginners how to communicate using pictures they draw. Awesome workshop! (I was sitting in the room with my Cintiq Companion 2, drawing some of the stuff he was talking about. If you want me in YOUR workshop or conference, hit me up on Whatsapp on +27741046386, or email on royblumenthal@gmail.com.)

#sketchnotes Jonathan Jansen (@jj_ufs) talking about INCLUSION — “Be present”

Whatsapp: +27 74 104 6386 Email: royblumenthal@gmail.com As a digital visual facilitator, I make speakers look great by bringing their material to life in hand-painted full-colour pictures. In real-time. As they speak. I hook my tablet pc to a video projector, and paint visual interpretations of their words on a big screen. Think of me as a live, interactive replacement for PowerPoint. I visually summarise, interpret, make sense of, and highlight their content. I’m happy to be at YOUR next event. Hit me up on…Continue Reading “#sketchnotes Jonathan Jansen (@jj_ufs) talking about INCLUSION — “Be present””

I’m using a loan machine right now from Wacom. It’s the 13 inch STUDIO PRO. My Companion 2 is going to Germany for repairs. Something odd has been happening with the temperature regulating mechanism. So it’s been crashing at really inopportune times. I’ve been configuring the Studio Pro to match the settings on my Companion 2, so that my workflow remains intact. Unfortunately, the Studio Pro, while having a vastly superior screen, and much less weight, has NO USB 3.0 ports, and THREE USB C…Continue Reading “Flower”

2017-05-31 Education in Finland — Best Practices

I went to a conference this morning on the Soweto Campus of UJ (The University of Johannesburg). The program had several leading educationalists from Finland sharing how their educational system works, and how South Africa is collaborating with them to improve our teaching. I was in the third row, only because the first two rows were reserved. Otherwise I’d have been in pole position as usual. Key takeouts from the sessions: 1. "We don’t trust steering, we trust learning." 2. Teachers in FInland are massively…Continue Reading “2017-05-31 Education in Finland — Best Practices”
