TEDx Toronto

Here's a little something I'm super excited about. Being involved in the amazing TEDx Toronto conference. And a new style altogether for me, dong the final rendering completely in vectors... no hand drawing was involved, besides a rough sketch I used as a guide.  There's a total of 12 of these portraits, one of each of this year's TEDx Toronto speakers.

You may not be able to read it here but I used each speaker's bio as the background texture, which I thought was pretty clever :-).

Emotional Freedom Technique Step by Step Comic

Comics are a great information design medium for sequential visual/verbal information.  If you're mostly used to verbal instructions you might think that all information is sequential, but it's not.  A lot of information is best explained spatially.  Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as EFT or Meridian Tapping, is both.  Actually, it's spacial and kinesthetic and verbal and sequential.  Comics works really well for this whole combination of information types.
