  • The Context

    Testing is learning about the product in order to evaluate it.

    – James Bach

    Drawing is a powerful technique for visual learning.

  • Guernica by Pablo Picasso

  • The Problem

    How to make an image more powerful than the blast of 50 tonnes of bombs?

    How to make it live on, long after the dust and debris has settled?

    How to make it linger in the mind’s eye, even when people have stopped looking?
