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.
