Today's guest is Raquel Santos .
I started sketchnoting a few months ago and I'm loving it! Not only in conferences but also in class I use sketchnote and it helps me a lot to remember things better, increases my habitity for drawing and also it's so much fun!! I'm so glad I found this way instead of boring notes.
This sketchnote is from a TED conference named How School Kill Creativity. Hope you like it!
Thank you so much for everything!
Thank you too for sharing with us, Raquel!

1. Tell us when you first met Sketchnote/Visual art
Saw some of Mike Rhode's work on a site or blog. Then picked up the books and dvds along with posting my own work to Flickr.
2. How this impacted on your life/work/thinking?
No more typing reports on conferences I go to. And also generating ideas quicker and notes of conferences/seminars are now be passed around the office.
3. Sketchnotes: digital or analogical? Why?
I use pen and moleskine. The limitation of pen and paper makes it more of a commitment when I put thoughts down. With digital I feel I could go back and undo parts I didn't like.
4. Share a Sketchnote secret tip with us!
Just go for it. There is no wrong way to Sketchnote.
5. What future do you foresee for Sketchnote/Visual Arts?
I think sketchnoting is a great way for people to see information in a way that isn't just text on a computer screen. It engages the thinking and helps people remember what they saw in a speaker. It will be around for awhile whether pen and paper or stylus and tablet.
Bonus. The Sketchnote Workbook: can you tell us something about it?
A great addition to the The Sketchnote Handbook. Also it was nice to have two of my sketchnotes included in the book.
We thank you Jake for sharing with us.
Here is Marti Canipe first sketchnote.
My very first sketchnote! I read The Sketchnote Handbook over winter break and decided to practice with TED Talks - picking one in Korean with subtitles was probably not the best choice, but I am still pleased with my first attempt.
You must be proud of this, Marti!
Good start, keep sketchnoting!
I find sketchnotes to be more labor intensive but vastly more interesting to create and read later than a written travel journal. Sketchnotes help consolidate, reinforce and synthesize my memories of a place. I'd like to think I'm doing my part to prove you don't have to be an artist to create sketch notes.
