The Forgotten Language of Drawing (TEDx)

You can now see the video of project lead Jim Lockey speaking at TEDx Folkestone about the MCF project and about drawing. This was an amazing experience which lead to some brilliant feedback from you people and adults to boot. Lots of people have since shared their stories with me and some have even sent their drawings. This talk is another expression of the ideas at the core of the MCF; anyone can art!

TEDx Insanity

Last Saturday I had the immense privilege to speak about The Mobile Comics Factory – and about how brilliant drawing is to an attentive audience at TEDx Folkestone.

This has been an amazing experience and a tremendous vote of confidence in the project… in a couple of weeks the video should be available online through the TEDx YouTube and beamed across the world to a global audience. The potential there is barely fathomable… though of course, it might just drift into obscurity. 

I haven’t talked about this experience on the blog because I haven’t really known how. It was so big I didn’t really know how to fathom it. And it’s all wrapped up not just in my goals for the project but in my personal life goals.
However once the video is finally available I will tell you more about it… I promise.
I want to thank all our supporters who have helped to make things like this possible for the project.
Best

Jim
