You love the idea of sketchnoting, but that little voice in your head tells you that you'll never be able to do it. Who do you think you are? Your handwriting is horrible. You can't draw a straight line to save your life!
Here's the thing about sketchnoting -- it's not really about drawing. Sure it's nice to have a few images to spice up your notes, but it's really about synthesizing information. You use the images to make them more memorable.
This tutorial shows you step by step how to create icons you can use daily to make note taking more fun. Seeing how easy it can be to draw basic icons will open your mind to the possibilities of sketchnoting. Our featured artists will help you kill that nagging voice that is keeping you from even trying.
We believe in launching early and often, so the project will grow over time. We'd love to hear from you on what you'd like to learn. Let us guide your sketchnoting journey!
