Hey SXSW-bound sketchnoters!
This year, SXSW wants to promote and showcase sketchnoting at the conference like never before. They've started SXnotes — crowd-sketched coverage of the festival — and they need you!
Here's how to participate:
1. Do your sketchnoting thing during the conference sessions
2. Join the SXnotes Flickr Group and share images of your sketchnotes
Every day during SXSW, Nora and Kelly of ImageThink will be selecting sketchnotes to send to the SXSW blog team for the community recap.
We're organizing 2 free meet-ups at SXSW Interactive in Austin on Saturday, March 9th, to meet fans and give away a bunch of custom sketchbooks.
Here's a mockup of the custom Sketchnote Handbook branded Moleskine Sketchbooks we're giving away:
We're challenging recipients of these custom sketchbooks to sketchnote panels and other experiences — then share their work with the #mSketchnote hashtag on Flickr, Twitter, Instagram and other social media channels.
Here are the details of the meet-ups:
Jo's Coffee Shop - Downtown: 10:30 AM -12 NOON
The first event is a meet-up at Jo's Coffee Shop Downtown (242 W. 2nd Street - between Colorado and Lavaca Streets), giving away 80 of the Sketchnote Handbook inspired Pocket Moleskine Sketchbooks and free coffee to those who want to take the sketchnote challenge.
Mulberry - 7:00 - 9:00 PM
The second meet-up will be at Mulberry on 360 Nueces Street at W. 3rd Street from 7-9. We can share a drink and your sketchnotes together, and have fun meeting others in the Moleskine and sketchnote communities. I'll be excited to see some of the sketchnote challenge work in-person at this event, and we'll have more custom books to give away to keep you sketchnoting SXSW all week.
Go RSVP for these events on Eventbrite, and I'll look forward to meeting you at an event! Come join us!

Benjamin Norris has been busy doing some great sketchnote work at conferences lately, so I wanted to share some of his recent work for you to enjoy and learn from. Above is a sample of his sketchnote work from RWD Summit 2012 — check out the full set of these sketchnotes on Flickr and be sure to visit Ben's website too.
