I went to the Sustainable Innovation Forum 2015 at COP21 - the UN Climate Conference in 2015. It was great to be in Paris and part of a truly global event. And here is my Graphic Recording of two of the sessions at the event. I used an extra large drawing board and the event techs were really good at setting up nice lighting for me. So it was a joy to be there Graphic Recording as it had some excellent elements. Those being i) great content that was globally relevant ii) loads of space to draw iii) great lighting!
Here you can see the image I created in progress and on the board. However there is , as journalists might say, a 'story within a story' here. Which is my recent obsession with Mad Max Fury Road. Now I've always been a fan of those films. I didn't go to see MMFR in the cinema because I was worried it wouldn't be good enough. Well it is. And for about 4 months after seeing it for the first time, Immortan Joe and the Giga Horse were sneaking into my event drawing.
But it wasn't just at the Sustainable Innovation Forum the Giga Horse has been sneaking in. At other events it just seemed to fit. Now follows a small collection of images from various events:
If you're going to drive growth, use a Twin V8 monster..
The Giga Horse can also be used to explore scalable IT infrastructure solutions...
It can be seen as an exemplar of great customer service.
And imagine my delight at being able to squeeze it in during a talk about car design. I'm sort of over it now, there have been few Giga Horse's appearing in 2016. There is an instinctive creative reaction in the space between the person saying something up front, the processing of the idea in the scribe's mind and the delivery of the idea via a pen onto a bit of paper. There is an immediacy there that makes graphic recording such an enjoyable experience. But it also means that Giga Horse's can just sneak in!
