First Live Sketchnote: Afroditi

Here is Afroditi's sketchnote fro her blog post Live Sketchnoting: The future of news

Sketchnoting is my September new decision. This is the first attempt I am not awfully embarassed to show - it is from a talk on Guardian's digital transformation.

I know I have a long way to go (hopefully #todaysdoodle crew offers opportunities for daily practice) so I won't be too disappointed if you refuse to show it!

Far from us to refuse to show your work and there is nothing to be embarrassed at all!

A great work, Afroditi!

Sketchnoting without knowing: Josh Muise


Josh Muise's sketchnote from his blog post How fun are Sketchnotes

My name is Josh and I simply LOVE sketchnotes. For years I've been 'sketchnote'ing" without really knowing why. I always felt this format allowed me to retain more information and have a little fun during dry meetings.
I've begun capturing fun weekend trips in this format as a fun way to remember things and share them with my wife.

If you like what you see, I'd love for you to share them.


Thank you for sharing with us, Josh!

Wearable Technologies 2014 Educause convention: Jim Reineke

Jim Reineke drew this Sketchnote at the 2014 Educause convention.
He wrote:
The session was a very informative session on the educational uses of wearable technologies. I tried to include more images and less text. 
Good work Jim!

Sketchnoting food experience: Ivan Seymus

We already featured Ivan Seymus's work here but you will agree his vision of  The Sketchnote Workbook chapter 7 "Sketchnoting food experience" is worthy.

He wrote:

Before I read chapter 7 of the Sketchnote Workbook I never sketched my meal before. It gets cold! Because I always sketch in situ, part of the urban sketchers manifesto, it never occurred to me to do so. So I started gradually: a glass of water, an empty coffee cup, a piece of (cold) pie, some jars. And where we ate a hot meal I sketched the view of the harbour. LOL So I still have a long way to go and I need to get over the fact 'thou shall NOT sketch from smartphone!' Blasphemy!

I think the sketchnote speaks for itself.

You can find other works by Ivan on his Flickr Photostream

Thank you for sharing Ivan!
