portfolio piece demonstrates two things. First, it is
content familiar to anyone who has seen The Wizard of
Oz. A difficulty in viewing graphic facilitation portfolios
is that you are only viewing the end product. You have
no frame of reference for what the process was like.
A vital part of this work is capturing the content of
the group and organizing it to bring more clarity and
meaning to the event. Only in experiencing the live
graphic facilitation can you appreciate the artifact
of the final drawing. I created this piece with familar
content to make the process more understandable.
these images were originally created for a workshop
for the Midwest Faciltators Network. The topic was visual
and spatial tool for faciltiators. I created a document
of a spectrum of 8 tools from strict text through Powerpoint,
flipcharts, post-it notes, templates, mindmaps, graphic
recording to graphic facilitation. I used The Wizard
of Oz as the content for every step to compare apples
to apples. I also use these two drawings side by side
to differentiate my drawing style and level of organization
and synthesis to a common approach in the industry.
There is plenty of space in this field for different
styles and processes and it is critical we each
represent our distinct approach to our clients. We can't
be compared apples to apples.
