"Sketchnotes help me focus": Samantha Rabino



Today we welcome Samantha Rabino .

She wrote: 

It's very liberating to have a teacher who encourages sketchnotes. Usually I'm the student at the beginning of the year who has to tell my teachers, "If I'm drawing while you're lecturing, I swear I'm paying attention! Doodling helps me focus!"

This made me smile Samatha! I bet we all passed through this!

Well done!

Psychopathology Class in a Sketchnote: Lindsay Braman


Here is a beautiful sketchnote by Lindsay Braman

She wrote:

After 10 years of a career in business, I quit my job last year to go back to school full time. The process of downsizing my life, relocating, and going back to school taught me a lot about myself. I take a lot more time to create now, and through the combination of a willingness to experiment and lots of classroom hours taking notes, I began creating these sketchnotes.

These white-on-black notes were a playful way to get the job done during my 3 hour psychopathology class this Halloween! "

Such an interesting story Lindsay! And great composition.

Thank you for sharing with us!

Sketchnoting a Conference with 2 step process: Paul Moran

Today's guest is  Paul Moran!

He wrote:

"This sketchnote is the first time I've tried to capture content from a conference. I created it using the slow two step process - took notes in a sketchnote-ish sort of way on the day then wrote up in this format to share. I was asked to share them along with 3 people who also attended with me. One produced some PowerPoint slides, one thoughts by email and another linked to the presentations that resonated with her. Mine were the only hand drawn ones...

I actually had to rush the redraw to meet our feedback deadline in the office and didn't have my decent pens so it looks rougher than I wanted but not so bad I couldn't share. It's been great to get feedback and encouragement from the community on twitter and I think it's my most liked and retweeted post ever..."

Love the use of containers, Paul!

Great job!
