The webinar was a creative, insightful, and inspiring discussion from sets of Resource Speakers. On the first run of the webinar Dr. Randy T.

In the second part of the webinar, insights, and creativity from the three (3) Resource Speakers ignited the discussion as they shared the book creation process from scratch to a publishable one. Ms. Andre Saet, discussed the Freehand Illustration process she is doing as the first step in creating a book cover and illustration for the book’s content.

Continuing onwards, the last part of the discussion was an engaging one as the Resource Speakers had a Panel Discussion where they shared insights and thoughts from the given sets of questions focusing on how to be continuously creative and does the emergence of AI hamper the creatives. With the answers and insight of the Resource Speakers, they shared that creativity is a process of learning new things, immersing ourselves in the community, continuously finding inspiration in a community, scenery, or the internet, and thinking outside the box. Moreover, they emphasized that AI is just a tool, and it is not the final output that you need to use or showcase as it is your creation.
