Sketchnotes - stepping out of your bubble

For quite some time I loved the idea of Sketchnoting form a reasonable distance. In High School I used to doodle and make fun headers for a lot of my notes. But during my studies the fear of missing out on anything important took over. I wrote down EVERYTHING. Now, I’m not a very quick writer (another wonderful thing about being dyslectic), so I still missed out on quite a lot. But in the end, the system worked for me. But as my life (or marks) doesn’t depend on whether or not I missed out on anything vital, I felt like my system could use a change.

Like I said, I’ve always loved the idea of Sketchnoting, but doing it is a whole other story. It’s not easy to go from not wanting to miss anything to only putting down a select few key points. And this definitely is still a learning curve. As is finding a balance of listening and thinking. But I have to say, for my first real attempt, it turned out better than I expected!

Live sketchnoting

The day after I listened to this class I also got an opportunity to try sketchnoting during a live talk. It went so much better than I expected! I managed to listen and write/draw at the same time. I think what helped was that I did the first draft in pencil and later went back to add the black outlines and colours. I’m very excited to keep experimenting and practicing!
