Do you draw the scribbles as you speak, or do you come with them pre-drawn?

I draw when I think. These were initially my thinking notes. A way to structure my thoughts. To see the picture better.

At one point I didn't have anything better to share and I saw that despite my chicken handwriting people got my point better than if I had worked on slides instead. Then I found this behaviour reproducible with different people.

Another theory is that my slides suck =) But I've been in developer relations for like 11 years. I had time to polish my slides-making and presenting skills.
