First Sketchnotes: Ian Hedley @ian_hedley

How Movies Teach Manhood sketchnote (TED)

Here are first sketchnotes from teacher Ian Hedley in the UK. From his post on sketchnotes:

Think of this of a good example of the “you don’t need to be able to draw” message. Here is an example of how I’m using them to help structure my thoughts. My job is a neverending stream of ideas, suggestions, problems and solutions. I love it. Organising all of this into a coherent strategy is never easy. Sketchnotes are a huge help.

Great work Ian!


Comics as a Tool for Inquiry Sketchnote by @Nsousanis


My friend Nick Sousanis, who is producing his entire dissertation in comic form, gave a presentation on "Comics as a Tool for Inquiry" and captured some of the ideas he's had as sketchnotes, seen above.

From his blog post on the topic, Nick writes:

I've included a recent quick overview of some thoughts on comics' capacities that I prepared for the classes I teach, which includes a few further wrinkles to consider."

You can also get a copy of Nick's PDF document "Comics as a Tool for Inquiry" to get more detail.

Be sure to check out Nick's blog, Spin, Weave and Cut for more comics goodness!


Open Space Technology by @LloydDangle


Loving these fun sketchnotes from Lloyd Dangle from a three-day Open Space Technology facilitator training with Lisa Heft in San Francisco. Lloyd writes:

Open Space is a process for holding meetings and conferences that is participant-driven and known for starting without an agenda. Particularly interesting to me is the potential for bringing visual tools into this process.

Make sure to check out Lloyd's portfolio and blog.


The Sketchnotes Challenge from @EvaLottchen


My friend and fellow sketchnoter Eva Lotta-Lamm announced a Sketchnotes Challenge in early March, offering sketchnoters the opportunity to capture the same recorded talk in their own style and get feedback from experienced sketchnoters.

From Eva-Lotta's post:

Everybody sketches the same 30 minute talk, sends in a picture or scan. I will gather all entries and put them up on the blog (update: the first entries are in!) so we can all compare and learn from each other's work. On top of that, the panel of experts will give feedback for each entry.

I was honored to be part of the experts judging and commenting on the entries, which included Sunni Brown, Craighton Berman, Brandy Agerbeck, Matthew Magain and Eva-Lotta herself.

We've now processed all of the sketchnotes, and you can see our feedback posted with each sketchnote in 4 pages on Eva-Lotta's site:
