Timothy Reynolds' sketchnotes from Pixar talk at Milwaukee Art Museum

Hey all, check this great sketchnote by Timothy Reynolds, who attended a guest talk by Pixar employee Dan Holland at the Milwaukee Art Museum a week or so ago. As always, loving the line art and uber sketchy style!

P.S. Mike is pretty busy working on his Sketchnote Handbook, soon to be released, so if you'd like to be highlighted at the Sketchnote Army, shoot me an email at info AT siriomi DOT com. Thanks!

Circles Conference 2012 recap by Sean McCabe

Hey all, Binaebi here to share some awesome sketchnotes by Sean McCabe found by Mike via Twitter. This set comes from the awesome handlettering artist

Absolutely love his reflection about sketchnoting vs handlettering in his recap:

This put me a bit outside of my element. I’m usually very meticulous. All of my work is conceptualized and sketched out in pencil before precisely inked. With the sketch notes, there was no time for the pencil stage, and I had to scramble to keep up. The results are very raw and there were a few mistakes here and there, but I think it was a healthy challenge for myself. It forced me to keep my perfectionism at bay and crank out cohesive notes.

A few of the notes are shorter or smaller than others. Please don’t conclude that those talks were any less significant. Some of them were more visual, with many graphic and/or video slides that were quite compelling. Other talks simply yielded more tangible notes.


Sketchnoting Video by Rebekah Olsen

Hey all, Binaebi here with another video about sketchnoting. This one is from a group of graduate students introducing sketchnoting to their class. I was notified via Facebook by Tarun Gangwani, who helped create the video and attended the "Let's Sketchnote!" workshop led by myself, Charlene McBride, and Veronica Erb. Great stuff!
