Comic for Thursday, Jul 15, 2010

Huh. It appears I have slayed one of my own comics. Neato!

Okay, the actual point of this is to show Grace's picture at a larger size. This wasn't the first time Grace has quickly drawn up visual aides, which might seem silly, but it's something I would appreciate. I am a VERY visual thinker. That "picture being worth a thousand words" expression is extremely applicable to me when dealing with instructions and reference material. If looking for an instructional book and I have a choice between a huge, in-depth tome of text and a smaller abridged book with visual aides, I'll choose the latter because the former may as well be a paperweight.

Which isn't to say I don't like books that are just text. I like to read novels, but that's very different from instructions and reference. Part of the fun of novels is imagining your own visuals, so that's the one major case where I consider pictures a negative addition to something. Other than that, however, I prefer visual input.
