Love the work of Chris Shipton from JQuery UK. I enjoy seeing Chris' use of cartoony characters in this piece.

I love the idea of a little calendar on the top right of the page to show what day the sketchnotes were captured.

Be sure to read her detailed analysis of the talks and sketchnotes in her UX Red Gate article UX London in sketchnotes.

Great work Michelle!
