Learning instructional design from a master artist
Will Eisner was a master storyteller and pioneer of sequential art. But it's not as celebrated that he worked on Preventive Maintenance Monthly for the US Army. It was a publication that taught soldiers how to care for their equipment using humorous comic art. I think it's required reading for instructional designers. You can peruse the online archives, but a copy of The Best of Preventive Maintenance Monthly would make a fine and inexpensive professional education gift to yourself.
