As a "recovering architect" I still have an affinity for paper eventhough my business and my facination is centered around tech. I have found for years that no matter how great the tech, when I am designing, I always go back and forth between paper and computer. Somehow the paper allows for a different thought processs to surface for me. Some would say the problem is simply the tech interface getting between your brain and the "paper". I am not so sure. There is something about the feel of Prisma Colors on paper and the process of designing and drawing while thinking thru a problem that may never be duplicated electronically.
In any case, the article is a thought provoking read for sure. And and of course, stay tuned for a follow up post on how I personally use some tech tools to merge my gadget addictions with my old school need to "draw" and idea.
