Hi folks, just a note let you know that Kevin Cheng has begun work on
a Rosenfeld Media book, "See What I Mean: How to Use Comics to
Communicate Ideas". From his book-in-progress site
(http://www.rosenfeldmedia.com/books/comics/ ): "Comics are a unique
way to communicate, using both image and text to effectively
demonstrate time, function, and emotion. Just as vividly as they
convey the feats of superheroes, comics tell stories of your users and
your products. Comics can provide your organization with an exciting
and effective alternative to slogging through requirements documents
and long reports." As he does in his workshops, Kevin will teach
anyone--regardless of artistic talent--how to effectively communicate
using comics.

If you'd like to learn more--and participate in Kevin's work--here are
some useful links:

This is great news. Congrats Kevin & Lou.

As a tangent, "Understanding Comics" has come up a lot lately in my
work and teaching. The reference is usually around documenting RIAs or
any highly dynamic application. The reason is that comics is not just
a great way to communicate ideas, but have a language for
communicating motion, time, message, emotion, etc. that can really be
useful when trying to communicate complex interactions.

Check it out! "Understanding Comics" (Scott MacCloud) .
