Want to be on my mailing list – as a way to keep in touch? I send out an occasional email with news from the studio and tips on visual thinking.

You can easily opt out any time (and I won’t be offended).

Plus, you’ll also get a FREE download, Top Ten Doodles for Visual Communication.

Drawing out concepts and ideas instead of writing down words is an effective way to communicate. Doodles are simple shapes and symbols that can be drawn in all kinds of situations. Plus it’s fun, and you don’t need to be an “artist” to do it.
