"Buttons are a Hack" from Josh Clark by Veronica Erb

I am seriously loving how Veronica's style is changing over time. What started out as primarily text-based has morphed into fun illustrations and a larger page size so the sketchnotes can breathe. Yay for white space! That is something I need to work on in my notes. I try to jam too much in a single page these days.

These are Veronica Erb's notes from Josh Clark's virtual seminar about how buttons are a hack. Great work!

Sketchnotes Workshop in San Francisco w/ Alexis Finch

NewImage

Here's a great opportunity to learn sketchnoting from Alexis Finch, in San Francisco on January 17th and/or 31st, 2012 at pariSoma Innovation Loft:

Sketchnotes are a visual form of note-taking that can include drawings, various lettering sizes and styles, color, icons, arrows, boxes and more — whatever works for you. And the best part is that you don’t have to be a creative genius to do it. It’s called Sketchnoting, not Art School!

This class has three sessions. Students may take just one session but are encouraged to take all three of the series as they build upon each other. Those with a visual arts background will still benefit as a certain looseness is needed for rapid sketching, which we will be covering in this class. To purchase a ticket for just one of the sessions, click here and choose the right date. For attending the complete class-series, you can purchase it on this eventbrite site.

We will be listening to RadioLab WNYC as our source material for sketchnote practice.

Sign up today at the registration page on Eventbrite.

Bill Keaggy on the Sketchnote Revolution

Nice article from Bill Keaggy from the Dachis Group on joining the Sketchnote Revolution as a new year's resolution:

I’ve got an idea for a new year’s resolution: Join the sketchnote revolution:

Sketchnotes are a visual form of note-taking that can include drawings, various lettering sizes and styles, color, icons, arrows, boxes and more — whatever works for you. I’d say that sketchnoting is officially a movement — maybe you’ve seen some from SXSWi or other conferences. And the best part? You don’t have to be a creative genius to do it. It’s called Sketchnoting, not Art School.

I was happy to see Bill describing his two-stage sketchnoting approach, where he takes rough sketchnotes at the even and constructs them into visually interesting sketchnotes after the event is over.

Brand Camp U Sketchnotes - Richard Shulman

Melinda "Small Biz Lady" Emerson at Brand Camp U

Here's an interesting take on sketchnotes from The iPad Junkie, Richard Shulman.

Typically Richard creates portraits with his iPad in the Brushes app, but when he attended Brand Camp U in Detroit this fall, he was inspired to turn his iPad portrait work into sketchnotes of the event and talks.

Check out the Brand Camp U set on Flickr and the article Richard wrote about the event on his personal site.
