Sketchnoting Food: Matthew Midgley

These are just a couple of the amazing sketchnotes by Matthew Midgley.

He wrote:

I document all my meals out. Usually they are special times with family or friends. In this particular case we were staying at a rural lodge with a small bistro/cafe of home cooked food - delicious! This was my evening meal, just after we arrived. When the wooden platter arrived I quickly draw the outline of the food and filled in some of the main lines. Then I took photographs of the food to refer to later (I used to draw out the whole meal before eating but use photographs now for the sake of speed!) I only use ink (unpin) and then colour in with watercolour. I never use pencil in my records.

Be sure to see all Matthew works on his website.

Amazing, Matthew, thank you for sharing!

First Sketchnote: Craig Nevels

Here is the first sketchnote Craig Nevels.

He wrote:

I came across Sketchnote Army about a month ago and have been sketchnoting ever since. I find I remember my notes a lot easier and they are easy to understand when I go back and reference them.

A great first sketchnote Craig, keep going!

Data Viz Course Sketchnote: Jenny Cham

 She wrote:

My colleague, Francis Rowland, is a sketchnoter, so I was inspired to try it after seeing his notebook. This sketchnote is from Tamara Munzner's course on data viz (see
I only really started sketchnoting myself after reading Mike's "Sketchnote Handbook" in Spring 2013 (which I read in a single evening with great interest!). Since then I have been sketchnoting at every suitable opportunity.

I now feel comfortable with my own 'style' of sketchnoting, which is often focussed on science, tech and pharmaceutical R&D-related topics. 

I think there's no better way to keep engaged and to enjoy attending seminars and meetings! 

Don't miss other Jenny's works on her Flickr gallery .

I like your style and use of colours Jenny!

First Sketchnote: Roxine

Here is Roxine first sketchnote!
She wrote
This is my first sketchnote. I was never good at drawing, but like Mike said in the Sketchnote Handbook, structure is more important! I created this at a church sermon on the book of Zephaniah.
Thank you for sharing with us, Roxine!
