These pictures give an indication of how In-the-Moment Drawnalism on paper will display at your event.

Output on paper:

We work fast to keep up with the speakers at the event so we will generate a volume of paper quickly.

In-the-Moment Drawnalism on paper in Display

Display of paper:

Practically, we will need a space to display the artwork, ideally in the break or coffee area, so people can view the artwork between the live conference sessions.

Each sheet of paper we deliver is 50.8cm wide and 58.4cm high. During any conference, every Drawnalist will produce up to ten sheets per day.

The special paper we use is also bleedproof – meaning that it will not let the waterbased inks that we use pass through it. The paper is also self-adhesive and works without leaving any glue residue. It fixes safely to plain painted walls, wood, glass and metal.

That said, by choice for display, we always advise using fixed or mobile boards for presentation like those shown below.

Working positions:

We like to have a fixed working spot near the exhibition point for the Drawnalism. This is because the volume of paper that we record will need to be managed by our team during the course of the event.

Practically, this requires a large table and chairs, an electrical powerpoint. And a spare flipchart is very often useful if the venue has access to any.

As you can see immediately above, we work and travel light and draw using metal easels that we will bring with us. This means our individual working positions are flexible and there should be plenty of room for people or cameras to peer over our shoulders if wished.

In any individual live session each Drawnalist will need

  • A good position for listening and drawing which is well lit
    (This can sometimes be an issue if the lights are to be dimmed during plenary sessions)
  • Small table and chair
  • Electrical powerpoint
  • WiFi codes
  • Space for display (see above)
  • Access to translation service (if required)
