• Thank you @NDYE 🙂

    Sorry for the delay. I have been off the message boards while filling Fiverr orders and developing an online course.

    During that time I did read the Pumpkin Plan by Mike MIchalowicz and decide to intentionally focus my efforts to grow just a few big pumpkins (ideas/revenue streams). I had been trying to grow a couple of dozen at one time :-O

    I have enjoyed working…Read More

    Do you know the time length of the presentation?

    Sometimes that helps me give an educated guess to how much information may still be on the way.

    Example:
    15 minutes into a hour long podcast my page should be half full
    But 15 minutes into a 30 minute podcast I feel I am keeping pace and saving enough space

    Is your goal to stay within a certain page limit?

  • Raven replied to the topic Jill's Progress Log in the forum Progress Log 5 years ago

    Jill this awesome!

    I love seeing how many of the sources find value in your notes.

    It’s a testimony to the focused way you can pull out the nuggets
    And your consistency and willingness to share your work!

    You’re inspiring.

    And I was looking for a blogging resource so this was extra helpful

  • Hello all,

    I am looking for resources on how to:
    1. Position myself as a visual note taker
    2. Be “findable” by those looking for a visual note taker

    Backstory:
    I have been doing pretty well producing notes on fiverr.
    I enjoy the workflow of creating one page visual summaries from client notes.
    Fiverr’ platform is cool but I don’t want to get stuck on it. I would be at their mercy since…Read More

  • Nice!

    I like the arcs in your hitchhikers thumb. I have trouble making the thumb look like part of the hand and remembering the lengths of the other fingers. Sweet

    @Chrisko: Thank you for the encouragement. The simple open or “hook” is something I wanted to try after paying closer attention to my favorite YouTube channels.

    Good Mythical Morning is my favorite model of:
    1. Quick Statement about Content
    2. Short Intro Sequence
    3. Content

    Thank you also for the feedback about showing more art background. It keeps popping up in the forum feedback,…Read More

    @Melanie: Thank you for the feedback. I went back and forth on how big to make that video inset. It sounds like it was large enough since it kept your interest 🙂

    The bio/credibility sounds like an important piece I overlooked. I don’t even have that on the course sign up page.

    Oh! I was also wanted to learn how to get overhead shots of sketchnotes without getting the tripod in frame.

    My solution this weekend was to use this funky wood clamp thing I found at a thrift store.

    Improvising: How I rigged a tripod out of found objects to get a nice overhead shot with my iPhone camera

    I do not know its original use. And I have to be careful not to over tighten the screws when I slide in my iPhone.

    The paint cans add weight to the base.

    Cross-posting: This is also on my progress log.

    Looking for feedback on my icons?
    If the time spent drawing was too long?
    The pacing or ratio of movement vs static images?

    Any suggestions would be helpful and i can apply them to future videos.
    I dont think i will reshoot this one; however, i am open to making changes in Premeire

    So glad the gray is working well for you 🙂
    I picked it up from Mateo 🙂

  • Raven replied to the topic Raven Progress Log in the forum Progress Log 5 years, 1 month ago

    About a month ago I posted a video for feedback. I receiver some very constructive notes.

    The biggest was to scrap my one size fits all approach and make a different video for each platform.

    So my one video turned into:
    1. A half minute YouTube channel trailer.
    2. A landing page video for my free PDF guide
    3. A Sketchnote video with invitation to pre-launch sign up for my…Read More

    Reporting in on my first Fiverr gig.

    The biggest pros:
    * It gave me a chance to refine a workflow for creating commission work from provided notes
    * It was a painful lesson on undervaluing my time
    * It gave me a chance to gain multiple good reviews on Fiverr

    My process:
    1. Sketchnote by squares on non-reproducible blue grid paper.
    Sample of Fiverr Work for feedback

    This would make it easier to…Read More

    @kiwitexan: Thank you Jill. I think I greatly underpriced myself and underestimated the time involved. It’s hard because I think I “waste” time working through nerves when doing work on commission.

  • Raven replied to the topic Sketchnote Videos in the forum Share Ideas 5 years, 2 months ago

    @tam-i-am

    I am developing my style as well. When creating videos for myself, I like allowing my desk to show.

    So much so that I have decided to incorporate my desk into the art for my social media channels:

    I struggle with remember that the Client picked me because they resonated with my body of work.

    Hey @dougneill,
    Do you brand/stylize your vids by applying a specific color tint?
    They look good. I just noticed they kind of have that bright yellow shade like the vintage look paper you use a lot.
    Just wondering.

  • Hey y’all!

    I just got my RocketBook Wave from a Kickstarter campaign.

    It’s a reuseable notebook that uses Pilot FriXion erasable pens. You can erase the notebook by placing it in the microwave.

    There are icons on the bottom of each page so you can photograph your page and send it to a cloud service or your email.

    Here’s my first page next to the png file it sent to my dropbox for…Read More
