Sketchnotes 101: The Basics of Visual Note-taking - Core77
Ok, so maybe you're not headed to a conference or lecture any time soon. Are there ways to practice in the mean time? The answer, of course, lies on the interwebs. Sources for online lectures abound, but the giant in the space is the TED Talks archives. A personal favorite that I use for first time sketchnoters is Gever Tully's "5 Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Kids Do". From the title, you already have an idea that there will be 5 basic sections, but as in real life, you'll need to be on your toes for any improvisation on the part of the presenter. Dig into those TED archives and queue up those movies people always forward to you, but you never get around to watching. Now that you're armed with the basics of sketchnoting, there's no reason not to pull out the sketchbook—even in the next work meeting you're sitting in—and start visualizing the conversation in real time. You'll be amazed at the results.
