Carl Richards, a financial planner and a regular on The New York Times’ Bucks blog, uses graphs and diagrams to explain personal finance. And as you know, sketches are always twice as charming when they are on the back of a napkin. Together, the collection provides sound financial advice, so that you don’t end up poor and bankrupt, chasing the next Google or investing in entertainment.

If you enumerate the napkins thusly:
1 – 2 – 3
4 – 5 – 6
you will note that the “pattern” of the fold/wrinkles in napkins 2, 3, and 6 are identical.
Looks to me like Mr. Richards is super-imposing graphics onto scans of napkins to achieve your charming effect.
The advice, however, sounds good to me.
darn it to heck. i’ll pretend that isn’t true.
