The last couple of weeks have had me busy working on a couple of lectures I have to give to a group of cardiology fellows at work. In the process of simplifying the lecture material (taking the "One picture is worth a thousand words approach"), I've been making up a new batch of graphics for my lectures using Inkscape, which I'm rapidly falling in love with.

A graphic artist I am most definitely not, so creating the graphics has been a lot of work: trying to imagine how to illustrate the concept I'm trying to get across, Googling info on how to make Inkscape do what I imagined up and tweaking the result.

By most standards, most of what I've created so far is pretty crude and simplistic, but it looks reasonably decent and (hopefully) gets the point across. I'm sure in the coming months, most of my other lectures will end up getting a similar treatment.
