Great work Matthew!

Top Coast Festival Sketchnotes: Patrick Rhone


My friend Patrick Rhone was instrumental in getting me to produce The Sketchnote Handbook  in 2012, and he was a student at my Sketchnote Workshop Pilot in 2013.

It seems only fitting that we feature his first sketchnotes from Top Coast Festival in Minneapolis,MN this year, to show how well he’s doing with the craft.

Patrick writes:

Big thanks goes to my friend and teacher Mike Rohde. I've been a very long time fan if his work and most of my skill is thanks to his great book, workshops, and friendship.

Great work Patrick! Keep on going and sharing your sketchnotes!

Blackboard T&L Conference Sketchnote: David Hopkins


A Blackboard Teaching and Learning Conference 2014 #BbTLC2014 sketchnote capture by David Hopkins

He wrote:

My first sketchnote from a conference - I knew the keynote Prof Stephen Heppell so I knew his style of presentation, but it still made it an excellent toe-in-the-water experience to try sketchnoting under pressure. 

You Definitely succeeded, David!

You can see other David's sketchones on his Flick Album

Beautiful sketchnote in pencil: Jane Pernille

Here's a beautiful sketchnote in pencil from Jane Pernille. I love how she blends all of the pieces of her sketchnote together on a single page.
Great work Jane!

UXSpain 2014: Javier Alonso

Here is Javier's sketchnote captured during UXSpain 2014.  I like the use of colors to highlight important features.

He wrote:

Currenty I'm only able to sketch in Spanish (my language) but I'm working my listen->translate->draw skills in order to take sketchnotes in English

Grear plan, Javier!
