My First Attempt at Real-Time Graphic Recording: 2012 State of the Union

My first attempt at real-time graphic recording: The 2012 State of the Union

Real-time graphic recording is hard.  But fun.  There is no pausing of the tape.  No rewinding.  Just intense listening with an intent to keep up with the flow of information.  The graphic above is what I came up with while listening to President Obama’s State of the Union address last night.  There is plenty of room for improvement, but I think I’m hooked on this whole graphic recording thing.
