First attempt at sketchnoting

Inspired by this tweet I decided to give sketchnoting a go. It’s great to get the creative juice flowing and for me it is a great way to get in the “thinking” zone. It’s a lot easier than I thought too!

Sketchnotes: Ideas, not art

Now I’m not really a great visual artist (not even close), nor do I aspire to become one. But this is just fun to do! I think sketchnoting is great to work on (technical) ideas, information or thoughts, and it is not hard at all. Everyone can do it. Really.

After I bought some fineliner pencils I practiced while listening to Peter Doolittle’s TED talk “How your “working memory” makes sense of the world”.
Which ironically explains why sketchnoting can help you learn, concentrate, remember, and instruct.

This is what I came up with:

As soon as I make another one that’s worth sharing I’ll post it here!
