Cartooning #Eval16


If you attended one of my sessions, I mentioned a coupon code for diydatadesign.  Here it is, enter Eval16 when asked for a coupon code and you’ll get the first month for only $5.

As in the past several years, I’ll be live cartooning this year’s American Evaluation Association Conference. This post will keep getting updated, so make sure you bookmark it and come back and visit over the next few days.

    I love the design = sticky notes, and the “time spent stressing vs. time spent talking” beginners to veterans continuum. So true!

      Thanks Karen 🙂

    Great work Chris. Like all good cartoonists, you are able to simplify complexity – and give people a chuckle at the same time.

      I really appreciate the kind words Jeff.

    Thanks for posting Chris!! Since I was unable to attend this year, these make me feel like I didn’t entirely miss the event. You’re such a talent!
