i usually draw whenever i can… and i also use regularly create commons licensed and shareable licensed icons from nounproject and flaticons websites.
then i take them, tweak them, draw my hand drawn block diagrams - drafted in a3 or a4 sheets. Use inkscape and gimp in the workflow.
I like comic stuff from cave paintings, to calligraphy to anime’s. i love em. grown fond of it… and inspired by many awesome comic artists out there… i thought it would be great if there is a workflow or tool available for commons to express their view. However, meme’s currently take that place (reproducible, mutable, transferable, and fun)
i do that, because i always felt a kind of text stuttered. So i love block diagrams and illustrations.
yeah i kind of felt the same way then people use non local examples… locality surely drives us affinity towards learning - atleast has to be used when the necessary resources are available and accessible.
