Here is a set of first sketchnotes from Samantha Hosea:
Samantha wrote me with a little more detail about her experience:
This morning I did a workshop on sketchnoting by @micheleidesmith at a conference in Cambridge (#uxcam). My relationship with sketchnoting has always been a bit... let's say... complicated. I've always WANTED to sketchnote, and I've tried a couple of times, but it always felt... not quite right. It kinda made me feel self-conscious in a way.
And then this workshop happened. Michele was really good at boosting my confidence. So after the workshop I kept trying, and created two realtime sketchnotes from talks at the conference. I must say, I'm quite proud of myself :)
What I learned: that it's all about confidence. If you feel you'll suck at it, it'll feel like your sketchnotes suck. If, however, you permit yourself the slight possibility that something quite good will come out of your pen, that possibility is actually there.
I probably have a lot to learn, but as from today on, I'll consider myself someone who enjoys sketchnoting instead of dreading the attempt of one.
Great job Samantha! Keep it up! :-)
