Sketchnoting a song: Josie Dee 

This sketchnote by Josie Dee is truly jaw-dropping!

She wrote:

It's a sketchnote of a song I was asked to do for a friend to give as a gift. I did it in two phases, slightly different to how I've done them before. With conferences and at work I tend to go straight for the pen and run with it. But as it was for someone else I did it in two hits. I started by playing the song once and penciling the sketchnote, marking out where I wanted the highlights, the space and the key words and phrases, both that stood out to me and - more importantly - the ones I'd been asked to highlight, I also I doodled an outline of the image. The next phase was to play the song on loop whilst I took a pen to the pencilled outlines and placeholders and then filled out the rest of the space with lyrics and colour. Having never done it before a) for a song or b) in two phases - I really enjoyed it.

It's amazing, Josie! Love the lettering and the color palette.

How to create a high-converting email campaign - a sketchnote by Selina Wragg

I love this sketchnote by Selina Wragg .

She wrote:

This is one of my favourite sketchnotes! I created it after watching a joint webinar between Kissmetrics and Campaign Monitor, about how to create a high-converting email campaign. It lists some crucial points that every marketer should include on their checklist when creating campaigns, and it's really helped me in my job. I went into more detail in this accompanying blog post:

Well done Selina!

Ohio State Youth Convention of the Church of God - Sketchnote by Joe Watkins 

Senza titolo

Today guest is Joe Watkins .

He wrote:

This is one of four sketchnotes that I did live at the Ohio State Youth Convention of the Church of God. It was my first time ever doing sketchnotes as a hired artist. I was also given the opportunity to teach two classes on sketchnoting, and we didn't have enough space for all the kids who wanted to be a part of it.

Woohoo! Seems it was a great event.

Thanks for sharing with us Joe.

"Boxes and Connectors are Important ": Nick Hood 

Today we feature a sketchnote by Nick Hood .

He wrote:

I've been taking notes from seminars and readings recently using a sketchnote approach. I find it a very quick and visual way to capture essential concepts and ideas. I'm no artist, so no fancy cartoons or fonts but boxes and connectors are important for structure. Two colours for shading help lift the structure off the page.

Completely agree, Nick!

"Avoid Stupid, Unleash Awesome" talk captured by Talia Lancaster

Here is a sketchnote by Talia Lancaster .

She wrote:

I did this sketchnote of a talk by a colleague of mine, Renesh Moodley - the talk was entitled "Avoid Stupid, Unleash Awesome". He's creating a DevOps South Africa website, the logo for which is a ninja cat riding a unicorn (so much material for sketchnoting)! It was all about empowering teams with true autonomy and trust - definitely something we can all learn to do more of.

I made this sketchnote at the Regional Scrum Gathering in South Africa, which was organised by SUGSA. Some of my colleagues and I took a trip down to Cape Town, what an awesome experience!

Very Interesting Talia!

Thanks for sharing with us.
