First Sketchnotes: Virginia Poltrack @VPoltrack

I'm starting a new category on Sketchnote Army called First Sketchnotes, where I feature the first sketchnotes that someone has done — both new and seasoned sketchnoters. This is to celebrate new sketchnoters, to remind everyone that we all start somewhere and to help us remember that sketchnoting is a journey.

Our first First Sketchnote feature is designer, illustrator and coder Virginia Poltrack, who reached out to me on Twitter after seeing and reading The Sketchnote Handbook. She gave sketchnoting a try and posted her work on Twitter.

Below are samples of her sketchnote work:

See more work from Virginia at her website, Dribble and Flickr accounts.

Great job Virginia!

Thank you for this! Mike, your book was INVALUABLE to me and I really appreciate all the support. Everyone should have a copy! It was clear, concise, helpful and just a great read, with lots of examples and encouragement. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is interested in sketch noting (which should be everyone!)
