Bjelkeman's travel notes

Travels with the cloud in my pocket.

Comics as manuals

Anil is the cartoonist for the socio-political cartoons in the Bangalore Mirror. Anil is an architect and has combined his love for drawing with his education in architecture to make cartoon instruction manuals for the Nepal government. The manuals describe how to build a school. Not just how to slap up any old shed, but doing it properly.

This is a very intriguing thing and I have talked to Anil about doing this for some other things which we have been thinking about with I love meeting new people like Anil, as suddenly you have a new possibilities to do things which just didn’t exist before you had met them.

A picture from the school building manual comic book which Anil have created.
