a few weeks ago i was invited to barcelona to document the annual international journalism conference News Xchange. for two days i drew everything that happened and took notes during all the discussions and presentations about the state of journalism, it's future, and why it matters more now than ever. i painted the drawings in my hotel room studio and then put all the drawings together to form a little story summarizing the conference. i presented it as the closing session at the conference and said a few words about graphic journalism. below are a few highlights from the story, and a photo of the giant screens it was projected on, courtesy of Cornelis Jacobs.
