The Sketchnote Handbook

I’ve been to a few conferences where there stands an artsy guy with a large white sheet of paper that draws out what the speaker is saying over the course of the talk. These are called Sketchnotes. Previously I thought these were the whim of the talented drawing type — something I am not. As it turns out they are not only simple to create, but far better to use and understand when you take notes.

To that end Mike Rohde has released a book on the matter — not just a book but more of a guide. Mike sent me an early PDF copy of the book and I have been reading through it — it’s fantastic. I’ve yet to try Sketchnotes, but they are on my list of goals to accomplish before the end of the year.

They just look fun, and meetings are boring — natural fit.
