San Francisco's Aquarium sketchnote: Mark Simmons

Here is a beautiful sketchnote by Mark Simmons.

He wrote:

I'm a freelance illustrator and cartoonist who's just getting into sketchnoting. By way of practice, I'm experimenting with putting more infographic content into my sketchbook drawings. These are some annotated pages from a recent visit to San Francisco's Aquarium by the Bay, and a friend suggested I send them your way. Hope you enjoy!

More sketchnotes about San Francisco Aquarium are published on Mark's blog

Of course we enjoy, Mark!

Thanks for sharing.

PR + Social Media Summit at MarquetteU: Jen Torres


Here is one of Jen Torres sketchnote she captured  at PR + Social Media Summit at MarquetteUni .

She wrote:

What started as a 30-day learning exercise (2 years ago) continues to pull me in and evolve. Inspired by Mike Rhode's Sketchnoting Handbook, I immersed myself in this artform. In my case, I focused solely on digital format, real time notes using my iPad, and a limited color pallette. The PR AND Social Media Summit at Marquette University (Milwaukee, WI) is an incredible wealth of knowledge and made for great sketchnoting. I hastily synthesized data during the sessions, and tweeted out the notes right there during the session. Much coffee was involved ;)

I continue to hone my skills by sketchnoting onscreen during sermons at our church. (Thankfully it's a pretty creative lot!). As a visual learner, I believe this medium helps others like us secure a better understanding.

Great work Jen!

Security Instructor and Sketchnoter: Juan Pedro Serna

Here one of Juan Pedro Serna's works.

He wrote:

In a personal way, my interest in the subject of "sketching" comes from my professional work as security instructor. Because of time constraints and choice of words, inaccuracy is inevitable. Why not avoid words? Why not report only the "big" idea? Why not use more images and less words? Visual thinking by skecthes was the solution. I became an active "sketchnoter".

You can see other Juan Pedro's sketchnotes on his website.

Wow, Juan Pedro, you cover very "thorny" topics!

Dave Logan's book Tribal Leadership sketchnoted by Kate Hayward

Here is a sketchnote by Kate Hayward 

She wrote:

Dave Logan's book Tribal Leadership turned a light on about team behavior for me. I wanted to make sure that I could remember how to listen for signals of tribal stages, so I sketchnoted it.

Love the limited colours palette.

Thanks for sharing with us Kate!
