First Sketchnotes: Ben Stolz


Here is Ben Stolz's  sketchnote he captured during a webinar.

He writes:

I was attending a really boring IPv6 Fundamentals webinar. Why are all IPv6 things boring? Anyway, I tried Sketchnote to stay focused and engaged. It worked.

I'm happy to hear this, Ben!

Keep going!

From the backlog: First Sketchnote - Raul Hernandez

I love these excellent first sketchnotes from Raúl Hernández! He's decided to convert a book into a sketchnote - the book is Helping, by Edgar B. Schein.

I talk about this in the new Sketchnote Workbook — capturing media like books, movies, TV and podcasts as a great way to practice your skills. You can pre-oder the book at Amazon with a release date of August 23rd.

Becoming an expert plan: Andrea Brücken

A nice example of skyscraper structured sketchnote from Andrea Brücken.

She write:

The idea for this sketchnote was to show my way of learning about different aspects of communication: languages, cultures, different arts like theatre, music, literature, verbal, non-verbal, visual etc.


Very nice, Andrea

Lean Day, London March 2014 Sketchnote: Elvia Vasconcelos 

01 Leisa Reichelt o

Here is a great sketchnote Elvia Vasconcelos captured at Lean Day in London, March 2014.

She write

Sketchnoting has been an amazing way to get involved with the Interaction design community in London and abroad. It has forced me into my first public speaking engagement at UCD 2013 and I am now using it on my work.

Sketchnoting is amazing, and the more amazing thing is the community that has grown around it.

Long live sketchnotes - hip hip, hurray!

Don’t miss other Elvia’s works on his website.

Amazing work, Elvia and thank you for sharing!

A Sermon Sketchnote: Bronwyn Leigh Dunn

Truest thing

A sketchnote from Bronwyn Leigh Dunn.

He write:

Hi Mike!
My name is Bronwyn Dunn and I'm a cognitive science major at UC  Berkeley. I am such at huge fan of your work, and your book has been incredibly inspiring to me.

I've been implementing sketching while taking notes in lecture since last semester, and it's helped me so much with recall and generally finding class more interesting.

I've attached one sketchnote I did recently during a sermon at my church.

Excellent work, Bronwyn!
