Livedrawings from
U-Create Sumposium: Teaching Art and Design Across Disciplines
on 8th of May 2019 at Väre, Aalto Univeristy

Speakers at the symposium: Salu Ylirisku (Elec), Oscar Person (Arts), Katja Hölttä-Otto (Eng), Tatu Marttila (Arts) and Anniina Suominen (Arts). Visiting speakers included Pirita Seitamaa-Hakkarainen from Helsinki University Craft studies and Mabel Tapia from Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, Spain.


I was hired as a visual facilitator for the symposium. My job was to document the discussions in illustration form and translate the topics into a easy-to-digest visual form. My drawing process was projected during the event so the attendees could follow along as I created the illustrations.

Illustrations drawn with iPad Pro, app Procreate.

Sketchnotes from Visualizing Knowledge seminar held on the 10th of May 2019 at Dipoli, in Espoo.

Seminar was organized by Aalto University School of Arts Design and Architecture Visual Communication Design department. 

Videos of my sketchnote drawing process were compiled together and the full drawing process video was screened at the end of the conference as a wrap up during the final words. You can see the video here:

Live drawings I made for Amnesty International at their seminar Shout out for Trans Rights! at Helsinki Pride House in 2018.  I illustrated the discussion with these drawings and I wanted to showcase concrete ideas on how to improve the position of trans people in Finland and abroad.
