Random Musing Cogitation #5


You know what really irritates me? It’s those instructional videos on YouTube that feature hand-drawn cartoons. I’m not talking about the cartoons themselves, rather, when there is an actual hand being shown drawing the cartoons. The creators want to make it seem like some artist is drawing while speaking at the same time.

What the heck is the purpose of doing that anyway? Why can’t they just show a completed panel? Why must I see it being drawn? It is nothing but total distraction. With a completed panel, I would have more time to process the information they hope to impress on me. Yet, some big, crusty hand is taking up most of my screen. Even worse, most of the drawing sucks. Have any of these people ever heard of Power Point?
