Circles Conference 2012 recap by Sean McCabe

Hey all, Binaebi here to share some awesome sketchnotes by Sean McCabe found by Mike via Twitter. This set comes from the awesome handlettering artist

Absolutely love his reflection about sketchnoting vs handlettering in his recap:

This put me a bit outside of my element. I’m usually very meticulous. All of my work is conceptualized and sketched out in pencil before precisely inked. With the sketch notes, there was no time for the pencil stage, and I had to scramble to keep up. The results are very raw and there were a few mistakes here and there, but I think it was a healthy challenge for myself. It forced me to keep my perfectionism at bay and crank out cohesive notes.

A few of the notes are shorter or smaller than others. Please don’t conclude that those talks were any less significant. Some of them were more visual, with many graphic and/or video slides that were quite compelling. Other talks simply yielded more tangible notes.

Another really awesome piece here. Her use of type is killer and makes me want to vary my handwriting even more than I have been lately. It's also really refreshing to see I'm not the only one who does my sketch notes in columns! I always feel like I'm cheating because it's not free-form enough.

Amazing hand crafted lettering! It's really hard to judge the size, position and weight of lettering on the page when you are live sketchnoting. You never know how much more of the talk is left and what to leave space for. I can learn a lot from Sean!
