A pet project of the international advertising agency Ogilvy, Ogilvy Notes set up camp at SXSW where they've been hard at work creating illustrated retellings of Interactive panel discussions, keynote addresses, and presentations like "Public Transit Data, APIs and City Governments" and "Star Wars Uncut: The Force of Crowdsourcing."

These colorfully compelling works are being distributed by hand to the nation's interactive thinkers who have converged on Austin, TX to eat breakfast taco and plan the digital future. They're also available online.

Says Mashable, "the agency dispatched six artists at SXSW to attend 25 to 30 panel discussions and act sort of as court reporters. The artists not only take notes about the talks, but provide some illustrations, a practice known as visual note-taking or graphic representations."
