I dedicated a Field Notes notebook to sketchnoting An Event Apart 2013. This was the first time I tried drawing the speakers as part of the sketchnote, inspired by Mike's sketchnotes. I love having the little notebook to flip through and reference, and the sketchnotes make those big ideas stand out.
Anoter sketchnoted recipe, this time from Neil Reynolds.
New Years Day. North of England. Family meal for 11. Using my mother in law's AGA range stove oven.
It (the oven, not my mother in law) is my arch nemesis and usually it all goes horribly wrong when I cook a big meal on it. So... thought I'd Sketchnote the plan to try to head off *some* of the stress...
I bet everything went fine and sketchnoting worked well!
The first sketchnote by Tracey Lavasseur is about a cooking recipe: one of my favorites topic for a sketchnote!
I had made a really delicious dinner and I had a few of my friends ask me for the recipe. It seemed like a great opportunity to to put to practice some of the different techniques and styles I had read in my Sketchnote Workbook.
Good choice Tracey! Sketchnoting recipes give you a whole set of features to play with: flows, icons, illustrations and storytelling.
Love it Tracey!

1. Tell us when you first met Sketchnote/Visual art
I've always been a doodler and one day I found the sketchnote army and was inspired to do more visual note taking! That was about 4 years ago.
2. How this impacted on your life/work/thinking?
It's enabled me to be more creative when I take notes.
3. Sketchnotes: digital or analogical? Why?
I've tried both, but analog/pen is more intuitive to me, it's just more natural.
4. Share a Sketchnote secret tip with us!
There is no shortcut! You just have to practice and do more drawing :)
5. What future do you foresee for Sketchnote/Visual Arts?
I think it will continue to be a creative way to create content and share ideas.
Bonus. The Sketchnote Workbook: can you tell us something about it?
The book gives lots of exercises and ideas for creating your own sketchnotes.
We thank you Mark for sharing with us.

Great use of structure and visual elements in this sketchnote by my friend Andrea Brücken.
In this sketchnote I wanted to mix vintage-elements and vintage-lettering with modern components. The topic is centered, in the four corners there are four main visual items. The storytelling was planed to be done with arrows of different size and forms. Seperators only exist in form of white space. The basic idea was to have a look at good resolutions lots of people have at the beginning of a new year.

Thank you Andrea!
