Last week I was in Austin. One of the reasons I was there was to help design some slides for Ian Murdock’s keynote, “Innovate. Collaborate. Integrate”, which he gave today.
Above are the slides. They start off as a giant, black, haystack-shaped software monolith, then evolved outwards into “Open Source”, and finally, to the Sun logo. The sixth cartoon is just a humorous drawing projected behind the other panel members who were sharing the stage with Ian.
I’m told the screen was fifty feet wide, so I’m guesing they would’ve looked rather spiffy. These were all drawn in pencil on 3.5-inch card [Business-card size, obviously]. The actual drawings didn’t take that long to execute; though getting them to work cohesively and conceptually took a long time, a lot of collaboration was involved.
It was a cool gig; I hope to do more like it. Thanks to the very groovy Sarah Dornsife for making it happen. Rock on.
Here’s what it looked like: http://blogs.sun.com/deirdre/entry/communityone_keynote
As I’ve been getting to know you and your work through your blog and your great free download, “How to Be Creative,” I keep thinking, “What Hugh does is cool but how does he make money by drawing on the back of business cards?” I’ve gained a new appreciation for the doodle! (and big corporate doodle sponsors!)
I can’t tell you how many times I was stopped this week to comment on the cartoons.. It was a huge success! Thanks, man!
