Using Sketchnote in Christian ministry: Pastor Mathews George

Today we feature a sketchnote by Pastor Mathews George.

 He wrote: 

This is an attempt to communicate the basics of Holy Communion to children who were preparing for their First Communion/ Confirmation. As a pastor working among young people, I was thrilled to find validation for my scribbles and doodles in my notebooks when I found out the whole #sketchnoting movement! It's a whole new world for me since and I am enjoying following I know, for sure, that Sketchnoting is here to stay. Thanks to the SketchnoteArmy team for all the inspiration and resources. Currently, I am exploring how I can use this in Christian ministry. God bless!

This is interesing: keep us informed!

Sketchnoting at DDDNorth 2015: Derek Graham

Today we are happy to host a guest post by our friend Derek Graham about his talk on Sketchnote at DDDNorth Conference 2015.

DDD North


This year's Developer Developer Developer North conference ran on the 24th of October 2015. I was speaking there for the first time and chose sketchnoting for developers as my topic. At Richard Dalton's suggestion, the organizers put my talk right at the start of the conference so delegates would get the chance to try out their new skills for rest of the day.

I pitched this talk for all developers regardless of drawing ability so I thought it would be fun to encourage everyone at the talk to try it out at at least once. A few weeks before, Mike Rohde had offered me a copy of the Sketchnote Handbook to give away so I set up a challenge at the end of my talk. The challenge was to sketchnote any talk during the conference and tweet a picture of it with the #dddnorth hashtag, I would then pick one at random to win the book.

Here are the submissions we had:

I picked one at random and it was Luke Stringer's tweet that won.

Thanks to Mike Rohde and the good folk at Pearson Education for the book and to Andrew Westgarth and the whole DDDNorth team for another excellent conference.

Thanks also to Jeannel King, Nadine Rossa for their encouragement and all the sketchnoters who gave permission to include examples of their work in my talk.

From the Sketchnote Hangout website:

International Sketchnote Hangout (#SketchnoteHangout) is a 1 hour Google Hangout that takes place at least once per month and is organised on a voluntary basis by the Sketchnotes community.

1 year ago, precisely on Nov,17 2014 our friend Dr. Makayla Lewis organized the very first Hangout.

Today she still is the living engine and beating heart of these events and to celebrate the First Anniversary Makayla invited the Sketchnote Master Mike Rohde to join us.


During the discussion Mike disclosed that he is workining on... fasten your seatbelts... a third Sketchnote book! 

For those who didn't make it here are some greate sketchnote captured from the event. 





Our friend Marc didn't make it so he posted a sketchnote about what would have been his questions to Mike



Finally, my personal tribute



Again, it was awesome.

See you there the next time!
