TEDx­Can­berra 2012 in paint

He’s been to every  earlier TEDx­Can­berra, but this year, Nick Ellis (you might know him as @electric589 on Twit­ter) used the iPad app, Paper, to illus­trate his response to many of this years’ presenters.

We liked them so much that we thought we’d ask Nick if we could post them here. Thank­fully, he said yes.

In Nick’s own words, “… largely the reason I didn’t draw some­thing for abso­lutely every talk: [was] some top­ics don’t lend them­selves to visual rep­res­ent­a­tion (or, I just couldn’t find a visual I thought fit­ted the talk well enough).

The sketches were report­age, of a sort, and in some cases edit­or­ial.

Sally Richards talk on her son Jack­son was one that I really struggled with, and, in ret­ro­spect am glad I didn’t try, because I don’t think I could have been fair to it.

Thank you to all the speak­ers, spon­sors and the team who put the day together, I had an incred­ible time in and out of the ses­sions.

Thanks guys, it was great.”
