Chapter 14. Spreading Your Wings

WELL, LOOK AT YOU! You’ve taken in a ton of learning, done the exercises, and answered some tricky questions along the way. Hopefully your eyes, mind, and hands have awoken to the amazing potential of visual thinking and visual communication through sketching.

It’s time we part company for now, and it’s time for you take flight with your new turbocharged sketching skills. I want to leave you with some final words about the following:

  • Looking for opportunity

  • Trying new things

  • Getting into the community of visual thinking and communication

  • Setting yourself challenges
