An Insight a Day

Visuals and Illustrations

I think pretty much all of my posts are purely text-based. While that's not inherently a bad thing, it's just hard to talk about design without using any visuals or illustrations. It's probably a good opportunity to start using them, but the problem is, how do I do this whole "illustration" thing?

The first thing that comes to mind is to learn Figma or some visualization tool, and then I can practice using pictures to talk about things. Perhaps do it in the style of Wait But Why (I'm a big fan of that blog, by the way).

Perhaps I could also pivot and make comics instead? Something like a comic-style lesson learned or insight followed by some explanation text? That sounds pretty good, so I think I might try it later this week and see where it takes me.
