    See Ed Emberley's Drawing books for kids or Dan Roam's "Back of the Napkin" book as starters. One of the main reasons I sketch in my storyboards is to facilitate collaboration.

    Ed Emberley's Drawing books for kids is quite good for a starter to enjoy drawing for storyboarding. Quite helpful, both the article and the comment.

    Great overview.

    People need to get over the fact that they need to "know how to draw" to add visuals to their storyboards. Simple thumbnail sketches are fine and there are a number of great books to get you started.

    See Ed Emberley's Drawing books for kids or Dan Roam's "Back of the Napkin" book as starters.

    One of the main reasons I sketch in my storyboards is to facilitate collaboration. Visuals also help groups/SMEs/IDs and Devs come into alignment because we can actually *see* what we mean. Visual storyboarding almost eliminates revisions.

    I'd like to see more of these Visual Thinking articles on eLearn Magazine.
