On Being: Seth Godin Sketchnotes by Doug Neill

Seth Godin On Being With Krista Tippett

Doug Neill captured an episode of the public radio podcast On Being with Seth Godin into sketchnotes a few weeks ago — it was so well received that Doug will be continuing his sketchnote work for each episode for the next 5 months.

Congratulations Doug, and thank you Krista, Trent and On Being for exploring a sketchnoting experiment!


Dean Myers' Sketchnote of Your Best Just Got Better

Dean Myers did a great sketchnote summary of Jason Womack's "Your Best Just Got Better" book. Loving the colors! See the Flickr page.



The Sketchnote Podcast

At the end of 2012 as a follow-up to The Sketchnote Handbook, the Peachpit team, my filmmaker Brian Artka and I teamed up to start The Sketchnote Podcast. You can read more about the backstory on my own blog.

Here's Episode 1 on YouTube:

This week we've released the 3rd Episode of The Sketchnote Podcast, featuring Sacha Chua, talking about how she takes her sketchnotes digitally, with a Tablet PC and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

We've shot 8 episodes and have 2 more to complete for the first batch of 10. These are queued up to release every 2 weeks — the next coming on February 19th.

You can see all of the episodes on the Sketchnote Podcast page, and subscribe to automatically receive them in iTunes or your favorite podcasting app.



MIT Enterprise Forum 2012 Sketchnotes

MIT Enterprise Forum Oct-2012

Here are some great sketchnotes from C. Todd Lombardo from the MIT Enterprise Forum in 2012. Loving the use of speech bubbles and name plates on these, as well as the light blue and gray highlighting.

Be sure to check out Todd's Sketchnote sets on Flickr - I can't wait to share more of them here!


Photography as Storyteller Sketchnotes - Espen Rasmussen

Hans Gerhard Meier (Twitter) dropped me a note who writes that he bought The Sketchnote Handbook and was so inspired, he dove into the deep end of sketchnoting by attending two talks in his home town of Fredrikstad, Norway!

Hans emailed me his work, so here is a sketchnote of a talk titled Photography as Storyteller by Espen Rasmussen, in Norwegian:

EspenR Sketchnote

Hans has a beautiful, loose technique of sketching details, and I really like the gray accents he has added to certain bits of the sketchnote. But my all-time favorite drawing is the iPhone sticking its tongue out at a standard camera. :-)

Hans - wonderful work! I look forward to sharing more of your sketchnotes here!
