Scotland 2016 Sketchnotes: a travelog by Julie M. Elman

scotland 2016 sketchnotes

We are happy to have Julie M. Elman with a new collection of great sketchnote.

She wrote:

I just returned from five weeks in Scotland, where I co-taught for a study abroad program called the Scotland Field School (through the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio).

I worked with design students during this time, and I thought it would be a challenge to "practice what I teach," in terms of gathering content, organizing it and finding meaning within it. The students I worked with sketchnoted as part of their classwork (along with creating infographics and magazine layouts), and I decided that I, too, would sketchnote along the way.

I wanted to continue practicing my sketchnoting skills, and I also knew that making my own sketchnotes would be useful for remembering my experiences as I traveled to different towns and learned new things. As I sketchnoted, I found myself combining journal-like entries with more factual tidbits — which turned into a nice mix of the personal and observational on the same page.

Using a pen, watercolor pencils, a self-watering brush and a sturdy Moleskin sketchbook with heavier stock paper turned out to be the perfect combination for sketchnoting while traveling on trains.

Never a dull moment — and now I have these sketchnotes to help me recall my lovely time in Scotland from this summer.

Website Discovery Process: Genie Gratto

Today we feature a work by Genie Gratto .

She wrote:

This past Spring, my work agreed to let me take a visual notetaking class and purchase three visual notetaking books (including The Sketchnote Handbook and The Sketchnote Workbook) as part of my professional development -- I wanted to see if the technique would help me focus better in meetings and get more out of them.

I have loved how it has changed my notetaking and my interaction with content in meetings, and have been slowly overcoming my lifetime of saying, ""I don't know how to draw!""

This sketchnote was one that one of my team members asked me to create at an internal organizational meeting at the end of a website discovery process. We were talking about next steps, how to proceed, priorities, outstanding questions, etc. I had agreed to take notes, and my team member suggested I try sketchnoting it.

Though I had sketchnoted meetings for myself before, this is the first time I did so with the plan of sharing it with the team after the meeting. I was surprised how well it came out, and excited to see that I did, indeed, capture the most important information from the meeting!

There are changes I would make, for sure, but I'm happy with this first public effort. 


You really must be proud of your work, Genie, well done!

"Laughing is a good cure" (German proverb): Andrea Langer 

Here a very clean and nice sketchnote by Andrea Langer .

She wrote:

Inspired by a sketchnote fun challenge on Twitter about Health issues - in a broader sense - (see #13TageGesundheit), I just finished my first sketchnote ever on the subject "Laughing is a good cure" (German proverb).
Being absolutely new to drawing, doodling and sketchnotes, I already got hooked. This is so much fun!

Thanks for sharing and best regards,

Thank YOU Andrea, love the simplicity of your style.
