As Doug mentioned, I am a big fan of the iPad pro with the Apple pencil.
Do you want to sketchnote live webinars for yourself or show others (via screen-sharing) what you sketch, while you sketch, Tam?
I very much like these apps for iPad pro: Work Visual, Sketch Club, Concepts, Explain Everything. But there are much more options. You can even connect the iPad with a regular computer…Read More
So … the daily challenge is still going strong … 21/128 done. Sometimes I skip a page (postponed only) and work on another one, due to circumstances. But I like how some things develop, that I go back to a sketchnote and add something. Some topics need to “sink in” before sketching them out.
It depends … Sometimes I work on my iPad, so saving is easy. The (loose) paper sheets are scanned on a flatbed scanner. I don’t do much cleaning up at the moment. If I am in a hurry, I just take a photograph with my iPhone.
If you are familiar with photo editing software you can go further with cleaning up and vectorizing. I personally am not willing to invest into Photoshop etc. at…Read More
Yesterday @ravensojourn asked me to post this sketchnote from the VerbaltoVisual Notebook (page 12 from the exercises) – your wish is my command, Raven!
Status update: 13/128 done so far
Sure 🙂 Thanks @christinekoehler, I like the change of perspective.
Great topic, Doug!
Christine, please do what’s best for you and your schedule. Everyone can begin their own challenge whenever it’s possible. This is about fun, not pressure.
Thank you, @DougNeill!
Like Christine I only worked through some of the pages with the video lessons before, but was a bit overwhelmed. Now that I become more confident, I really want to use it. So many great tasks! It’s perfect for regular sketchnoting practice.
By the by, 2/128 done.
you decide how much you can do each day/week. I want to form a daily habit, so I will go for 7 pages. I estimate 10-30 minutes per day. It’s not about the videos at all.
To find the Notebook, take these steps (look at the pictures I attach):
Scroll to the top of this page and click on “An Introduction to Visual Note-Taking” under Courses. On that page scroll a bit down…Read More
In yesterday’s challenge meet-up Ana and I agreed upon working our way through the VerbaltoVisual Notebook, one page a day.
Beginning today, March 16, we’ll form a new habit to polish up our sketchnoting skills. We can check in on each other every Tuesday and Friday.
Want to join us? Just print the Notebook, make some time each day (maybe at the same time or connected to another…Read More
It’s really clever, @Raven – limited resources, the labeling. And of course we all get some kicks out of office supplies, don’t we 😉
it would be nice if you can manage to stop by now and then – but no pressure. We want to #bringbackthefun.
Dog barking can really be annoying … hopefully they did not move out already and left poor doggy behind!
I am not sure if I will be able to participate Monday and Tuesday in any of the webinars and the challenge, because Monday is “moving-the-furniture-day” but the…Read More
This is what I came up with.
Divided my page into 8 identical rows.
Row 3-7 are divided into 4 columns.
You put a template under your paper and use the title, speaker and date/signature rows each time.
The grid is your playground. Use it with columns for different speakers or main points, or top to bottom, left to right, or vice versa. In your sketchnote you won’t see the grid, it…Read More
I didn’t have the energy to do any other sketchnote this week, but I want to spend the time before our pre-webinar talk to think about your questions, Ana.
How I would sketch a ritual: something involving a circle with an arrow and a calendar, maybe the action for the ritual in the middle, the round arrow around it, with a little space in it and the calendar. If it’s ritual in the sense…Read More
My take on Sandra Aamodt’s talk.
I still have to work on the talk by Matt Cutts. It was a quick one, but so short that I only took text notes – will illustrate them later. Also had Judson Brewer’s talk in the works but somehow lost my focus after a while and need to redo it.
At least I did some sketchnotes and am able to make it to the webinars and our challenge talks. I am still not…Read More
Michael Hyatt’s latest podcast is about habits and habit building too. I just add it if you’re into the topic 😉
I want a brainbrush, Christine! So awesome …
As far as I understand sketchnoting, it’s exactly not about capturing everything. If you get what you think is the essence of a talk, what spoke to you, it’s perfect.
Graphic recording of course has another focus – other people determine what the most important stuff is.
Have a great weekend!
Hi Renita, welcome!
I know I am very early with this on a Friday, but I need to do some work in advance (being on the railroad again soon).
On TED are some playlists and I found this one “Talks to form better habits” with eight talks in a range from 3 to 20 minutes each. Why not use those talks to form a better habit? Like, how to make nice headlines … or add little, personal details that make your…Read More
