Ignite DC #9

Brandon Schmittling

Draw Your Thoughts

It's not often we push away from the keyboard and lay hands on pen and paper. The act of rapid sketching or doodling may even be falling out of style, a sign of our culture's focus on reducing the amount of paper we use. In 5 minutes I'll present reasons to return to drawing, it's personal and business applications, and a few ways to get started immediately for those whose background isn't based on art and design.
