Jul 15, 2008: New RM book signing: Kevin Cheng on comics

I'm quite excited about this one. In the interests of efficiency, I'll just steal the announcement from the Rosenfeld Media site:

Many in the user experience world are become quite familiar with Kevin Cheng's wit and perspective through OK/Cancel, the brilliant comic strip he co-creates with Tom Chi (more about Kevin here.) Now we'll get to delve further into Kevin's creative mind: he's agreed to write See What I Mean: How to Use Comics to Communicate Ideas for Rosenfeld Media. Kevin and I have been bouncing around this book idea for years, and I'm thrilled that we'll have an opportunity to work together.

Many recognize that comics are a powerful design tool, but assume they need to be artists to create comics. Through his workshops Kevin has been disproving that assumption for years, and now his book will do the same for a wider audience. See What I Mean will teach anyone, regardless of drawing ability, how to use comics to communicate design concepts effectively.

Like all Rosenfeld Media books, Kevin's begins with a book-in-progress site where he'll share his ideas as they develop, and where we hope you'll do the same. We invite you to engage in Kevin's writing process; this is your opportunity to shape what we believe will be a mainstay on every designer's bookshelf for years to come. You can also keep up with the book's progress by subscribing to its RSS feed.
