Sketchnoting Books: Kate Wing

An example about how Kate Wing sketchnotes the books she read.

She write:

I'm working my way through a pile of 'books I keep meaning to read' and practicing my sketchnoting as I go. This is much denser than anything I'd do on a wall for a group, but I liked the challenge of capturing my takeaways in a very limited amount of space (though I did cheat into the neighboring page a bit).

It's not cheating, Kate, you just had lot's of Ideas!

The Sketchnote Workbook featured Sketchnoter: Tyra van Mossevelde

1. Tell us when you first met Sketchnote/Visual art

While searching for a new design project I stumbled upon a call for a live sketchnoter. ‘That would be a wonderful day job’ I thought, so I started practicing on TED talks and live presentations.

 2. How this impacted on your life/work/thinking?

Although it didn’t become my day job, I still use the skills I learned. When things get complicated I always start drawing. It’s also a good method to explain and discuss things with other people.

3. Sketchnotes: digital or analogical? Why?

I like to draw on an iPad mini because it’s much easier to rip out the pages.

 4. Share a Sketchnote secret tip with us!

If you can’t draw an idea or a story, then you know the idea or the story isn’t plausible. That’s the moment you start asking questions to get things clear.

 Bonus. The Sketchnote Workbook: can you tell us something about it?

If you want to join the world of sketchnotes, this is a nice place to start.


We thank you Tyra for sharing with us.

The Thinking Hands: Krina Patel 


Here is an interesting Sketchnote by Krina Patel 

She wrote:

I made this sketchnote because I think it is important to emphasize how hands help us think. I spent years working on this very idea of embodied cognition for my doctoral degree at Harvard University. I had the good fortune of working with David Perkins, author of The Intelligent Eye.

I admire Mike Rohde's efforts in promoting Sketchnotes through his books and writings. I appreciate the Sketchnote Army web team for showcasing the wonderful, inspiring work the Sketchnote Army is doing around the world. Yeah! A big hurrah for 'Sketchnoters without Borders.'



Thank you very much, Krina!

We are very happy to have you here, thank you for sharing with us!

Managing Problems with Sketchnote: Tara Roskell

See these sketchnotes by Tara Roskell .

She wrote:

I have recently started using sketchnotes (a friend recommended your videos) to explore different creativity techniques and ways of generating ideas.

The sketchnotes in the above URL are based on taking a problem in a niche/profession and then using random features of another profession to try and solve that problem in novel ways. I want to be able to present creativity techniques in a more user friendly form.

I have always done rough scribbled mindmaps but the sketchnotes actually make me want to look back at the ideas more. It is also much easier to see at a quick glance what you were thinking about when you created the drawing.

A very good start Tara! Keep going!
