Doodling may have gotten you in trouble in history class, but at TEDx events, it’s highly encouraged.
All over the world, über-talented artists are contributing to the TEDx world of ideas by putting TEDx Talks onto paper — complete with portraits, calligraphy, speech bubbles, and, sometimes, meditations on donuts.
Below, 5 great graphic recordings of TEDx Talks. Huzzah!
You gotta love a graphic recording written partially in 1337. A+, TEDxYouth@Bath. A gem from Nat Al-Tahhan, who also happens to curate TEDxBristol.
A sampling of Carolyn Sewell’s amazing hand-lettered notes from TEDxPennQuarter. Nice advice: “Trust that you will find fulfillment…”
Melinda Walker at visual note collective One Squiggly Line created this stellar recap of a talk at TEDxStanford. So colorful!
At TEDxSanAntonio, master doodler Rick-O crafted this lovely visual diary. We absolutely love the drawing of the chamber group. Ah, the cello.
When he’s not documenting TEDxYouth events, graphic designer Nat Al-Tahhan takes on his own event — TEDxBristol — and jotted down our new favorite instruction: “Poke a cell today.” Will do.
