I strongly reccomend see the whole series on this post on her blog.

I'm still learning but this seemed like a good way to take notes that I might actually look at again in the future and taking them helped me remember key points more easily. 

Completely agree, Bashierah!

Thank you for sharing with us!

Sketchnoting before it was a thing: Kurz Wort

This is the first of a series of three sketchnotes KurzWort describes in his message to us.

He wrote:

I think, i have been sketchnoting before there was this word. After 2 years as a graphic designer, I startet to work as an advertising copywriter und I still do since 30 years. In my free time I sketch & draw and write just for fun. One of my favourite sujets is to watch TV or theatre plays and to sketch my impressions. So here are three drawings, made after/while
1. the play "Andorra" by Max Frisch, (watching the school performance and drawing at at time)
2. the 1st chapter of "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas" (drawn while listening to the audiobook)
3. the Mackie Messer Song (each verse gets a sketch)
Hope you like it, hope you accept my English (I'm German.)

You can see the other two in this blog post .

We love them, Kurtz!
