I was privileged to be the live sketchnote artist/visual facilitator during two sessions of the Vancouver-based TED2016.

I was located in the amazing ideation space, the DELOITTE GREENHOUSE, in Woodmead. The speakers were all streamed to a video projector in the venue. And my sketchnotes were displayed in real time on a screen beside the TED talks.

One lovely piece of gear at the venue was a wireless transmitter from my computer to the projector. This meant I didn’t need any cables. It was seamless, and every line I drew on my machine appeared instantaneously on the projector screen. Very cool widget. I want one.

Enjoy the pics. The main one — the big poster — was made in two phases…

1. The speaker caricatures were done beforehand, during a morning of pre-production. This included me creating the background image, and preplanning roughly where each of the talks would be placed.

2. The live capturing of the talks themselves. That happened before the eyes of the TEDx audience.

The twelve speaker pics were all taken from the main picture, and simply resized and repositioned during a morning of post-production the day after the event.

As always, I am available for YOUR conference or event, to make the material come alive. Book me via email at, or via Whatsapp or Telegram or SMS or Phone call on +27 74 104 6386. I work internationally, and I’m based in Johannesburg. I also do presentation coaching.
