My #sketchnote: #CreativeMornings — 2019 November — @NhlanhlaMahlangu — #cmLost #jhb_cm @WeLoveNiceWork @10and5 @WeWork

Thanks so much to Nhlanhla Mahlangu for his moving talk/chant/dance this morning. He delivered a homage to his grandmother, who forced him to believe in himself. My key takeaway from this morning is that "the body remembers". Everything gets stored in the body. And we can use the body to release or replay these things.

My preparatory layout for #CreativeMornings — 2019 November — @NhlanhlaMahlangu — #cmLost #jhb_cm @WeLoveNicework @10and5 @WeWork #sketchnotes

Prepping for #CreativeMornings. Here’s my caricature of Nhlanhla Mahlangu, along with the reference pic.

I always prepare for any event by spending time understanding the topic, looking at graphic elements, and working out what needs to be drawn before the event itself kicks off. When I do a Creative Mornings event, one of the elements I do before the gig is a caricature of the speaker. In this case, we’re looking at the vocalist, composer, theater maker, dancer and educator, Nhlanhla Mahlangu. (Here’s his Facebook link: www.facebook.com/nhlanhla.mahlangu.5030.) The way I draw many of my caricatures is to pop a…Continue Reading “Prepping for #CreativeMornings. Here’s my caricature of Nhlanhla Mahlangu, along with the reference pic.”

#CreativeMornings — 2019 September — @BradleyKirshenbaum — #cmMuse #sketchnotes @WeLoveNiceWork @WeWork @LoveJozi

Bradley Kirshenbaum, the creator behind the Love Jozi brand of gorgeousness, talked about his muse at this month’s Creative Morinings. His muse is… You guessed it… Joburg itself.
