First Sketchnotes: Adam Walker Cleveland @adamwc

Marcus Borg Sketchnote

Adam Walker Cleveland is a recent reader of The Sketchnote Handbook who has been sharing his practice of sketchnoting on his PomoMusings blog.

He writes:

I haven’t gotten to practice as much sketchnoting as I had hoped to over the past couple weeks since reading Mike Rohde’s The Sketchnote Handbook, but last Friday I went to hear Marcus Borg and got to practice a bit. Our church partnered with some of the other progressive churches in town and brought Borg here this past weekend."

and this follow-up from more practice with a TED video:

I watched Amanda Palmer’s “The Art of Asking” (not the Art of Happiness, like I thought when I sketched the title of the video on the note below) this morning and did another sketchnote. I think I’m kind of struggling with the drawing piece of this, but I’m having a lot of fun with it."

Adam, I think you're doing great! I think text-heavy (or I would call these Lettering Focused) are just fine as are your drawings on the Amanda Palmer sketchnotes.

Remember that it's about capturing the ideas — as long as that's working for you, you are enjoying the process and it's capturing ideas for later reflection, you're golden!
