This gorgeous, fully illustrated handbook tells the story of
sketchnotes--why and how you can use them to capture your thinking
visually, remember key information more clearly, and share what
you've captured with others. Author Mike Rohde shows you how to
incorporate sketchnoting techniques into your note-taking
process--regardless of your artistic abilities--to help you better
process the information that you are hearing and seeing through
drawing, and to actually have fun taking notes.
The Sketchnote Handbook explains and illustrates practical sketchnote techniques for taking visual notes at your own pace as well as in real time during meetings and events. Rohde also addresses most people's fear of drawing by showing, step-by-step, how to quickly draw people, faces, type, and simple objects for effective and fast sketchnoting. The book looks like a peek into the author's private sketchnote journal, but it functions like a beginner's guide to sketchnoting with easy-to-follow instructions for drawing out your notes that will leave you itching to attend a meeting just so you can draw about it.
