Growing as a Sketchnoter: Tips from @sachac

20121216 Growing as a sketchnoter

My friend and fellow sketchnoter Sacha Chua had a great sketchnote and post in December last year that I think is a great reference — Tips for growing as a sketchnoter for anyone starting to sketchnote and wanting to grow in their practice.

Sacha writes:

New to sketchnoting? Aside from reading Mike Rohde’s The Sketchnote Handbook (see my sketchnote of it!) and Dan Roam’s Back of the Napkin, how else can you grow your skills? Here are some ideas from how I keep working on improving my sketchnoting. Hope you find them useful!

Thanks Sacha!

First Sketchnotes: Virginia Poltrack @VPoltrack

I'm starting a new category on Sketchnote Army called First Sketchnotes, where I feature the first sketchnotes that someone has done — both new and seasoned sketchnoters. This is to celebrate new sketchnoters, to remind everyone that we all start somewhere and to help us remember that sketchnoting is a journey.

Our first First Sketchnote feature is designer, illustrator and coder Virginia Poltrack, who reached out to me on Twitter after seeing and reading The Sketchnote Handbook. She gave sketchnoting a try and posted her work on Twitter.

Below are samples of her sketchnote work:

See more work from Virginia at her website, Dribble and Flickr accounts.

Great job Virginia!
