character illustrations & icons: instructional techniques

A little more work from my online course — these are illustrations depicting four instructional techniques that can be used in training settings. I put these together for a group presentation. The icons helped organize the rest of the content in the document. If you’re interested, you can check out the final presentation┬áitself.

bored

Look at this little dude! He’s so boring! Only boring people are bored. And he is a bored student, an illustration I made for a written report. Because I like to make extra work for myself, to go with the assignments for my online Adult Learning classes. It’s like bonus learning!

illustrative doodles: reflective report

Having been hired (at least temporarily) and spending much of my time at work or dabbling in a million other summertime activities, I haven’t had much chance to get any other serious work in. Hoping to turn that around now that I’ve adjusted to my schedule. I have some projects I’m really looking forward to working on, but for now, here’s some super-quick illustrations I did for my online Adult Learning & Staff Training certificate course.

These were just meant to illustrate the three topics of my final reflective report for the first course of the program. Fortunately for me, the course allowed you to be a bit creative in the presentation of your report — that is, not making it a firm requirement to stick to size 12 Times New Roman or anything like that — so I chose to include some hasty & playful artwork.

character illustration: Stephanie!

 

It’s Stephanie!

Stephanie did me a huge favour in helping me publish my Captivate demo course (getting around the limited availability that Adobe imposes on materials published with the 30-day trial). In return I promised to create an illustrated character based on a photo of her. Here it is!

I’m taking a class at Skillshare right now — an open skills teaching environment. The one I’m doing happens to be free, but most classes are just 20 bucks or so. Lots of design stuff, but also cooking, business and other sorts of classes as well.

Anyway, my class is called ‘Illustrate Your Day: An Intro to Symbol Design’ and the project we’re working on is a set of symbols that tells the story of your daily routine.

I was doing some concept sketches last night and… symbol design is pretty tricky! I’ll keep you updated as I progress.

character dev: Chef Tony

character dev: Chef Tony

When I went to school at Humber, we shared a building with a few culinary classrooms. The chefs-in-training had checkered pants as part of their uniform, so I guess there’s some reason for that?

Anyway, here’s teeny Chef Tony. He’s got his regulation checkered pants and everything!

I’ll be using him in a demo training course I’m making to show my abilities with e-learning authoring tools like Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline. More screenshots from that as I progress along.
