Austin Kleon's Reinventing Poetry TEDx Sketchnotes


My friend and Visual Note-Taking partner in crime, Austin Kleon just did a talk at TEDxPennQuarter and I just love how he explains his process of preparation for the talk:

The TEDxPennQuarter folks asked me to give a 10-minute talk around the theme of “reinventing,” with the (not-at-all-lofty!) title, “Reinventing Poetry.”

It started out like almost everything I do: with doodling.

Above is a sample of some sketchnoting/doodling he did to sort out the ideas for his slides and talk, which goes to show this idea of sketchnoting can be applied in so many different ways.

Be sure to watch the video on his blog post as well.

Very nice set of sketchnotes by Tim Malbon, co-founder of the London firm Made by Many. His sketchnotes capture the firm's recent Agile training day in just 10 pages. Great work Tim!
