A YEAR AND A HALF AGO THE SKETCHNOTE HANDBOOK WAS, RELEASED INTO THE WORLD Frankly I was nervous about the launch I. had no idea how my first book would be received, Boy was I wrong to worry The Sketchnote Handbook launched to immediate.
excitement from its readers I received a constant stream of positive social media. mentions encouraging email messages and more positive book reviews than I. would have imagined It was an awesome experience, Invitations to appear on podcasts came in while reviews were posted on blogs and. websites Within a few months Peachpit Press had to print more copies of the. Handbook video edition due to brisk sales, German and Russian publishers licensed and printed Handbook translations. which became hits in those countries while Czech and Chinese publishers. licensed the book for their own native versions of the Handbook. I spoke on sketchnoting in Portland Austin San Antonio and Chicago selling out of. the books I d brought with me I was stoked when Moleskine reached out to create a. limited edition custom sketchbook to give away at SXSW in Austin. All I could think was Wow this book is a hit And I still receive positive feedback. from people all over the world, Why such positivity Business owners consultants designers developers. writers doctors teachers students and parents all tell me how my Sketchnote. Handbook has changed their mindset For many the book has encouraged them. to more deeply engage in and understand the ideas they re seeing and hearing. People tell me that sketchnoting has given them the freedom and flexibility to. play with ideas enabling them to create meaningful visual documents that help. them better understand and remember ideas and experiences. The constant flow of positive feedback blended with my desire to share more. ways to apply sketchnotes inspired me to write The Sketchnote Workbook. WHAT IS THE SKETCHNOTE WORKBOOK, Capturing meeting notes or sessions at conferences is a great way for readers to. immediately apply sketchnoting techniques and see great value in the approach. The hundreds of sketchnotes I ve seen since the release of the Handbook verify it. But there are still many more ways sketchnotes can be used that I want to share. As a veteran designer I use sketchnotes for idea generation and idea mapping. daily For years I ve created travel and food sketchnotes that transport me back. to memorable experiences,My food sketchnotes from,Portland Oregon.
But it s not just me Friends in the sketchnoting community constantly share how. they use sketchnotes to document processes plan projects and capture ideas in. books movies TV shows and sporting events, I ve collected the techniques I ve learned from fellow sketchnoters in the. community waiting for the right time and place to share them You ll find this. workbook full of new sketchnoting ideas plenty of worksheets and a range of. challenges designed to rapidly improve your sketchnoting skills. My hope is that by working through this book you ll be inspired to try new. sketchnoting ideas I d love to see you adopt advanced drawing techniques to tackle. the tougher sketchnoting challenges you ve been avoiding until now. Sketchnote Handbook Thanks for cheering me on when things seemed darkest PEACHPIT your team was my secret weapon once again Thank you Liz Welch for your eagle eye James Minkin for another perfect index Tracey Croom for making this a superb looking book and Eric Geoffroy for providing expert knowledge to create another fantastic video
