Showed me I can draw after all,
This review is from: The Sketchnote Handbook Video Edition: the illustrated guide to visual note taking (includes The Sketchnote Handbook book and access to The Sketchnote Handbook Video) (Paperback)
The primary reason I bought this book was to get into drawing. All my life I've told myself I can't draw. After reading this book and watching the videos, I was drawing faces, buildings and everyday objects. I was quite surprised at the progress I had made in 2 days. I can draw, after all.
I want to use Sketchnotes for travel notes -- making notes about places I've visited, impressions of food markets, monuments, churches, etc. Although the point of the book is to get you to make great notes when you attend a conference, you can use the skills you learned to make notes about anything. For people who keep diaries, like me, it's a fun and creative way to record thoughts, feelings and impressions using drawings instead of words. It makes a diary much more interesting to read.
I love this book because it is beautifully done -- thick paper, gorgeous drawings. The flow of the lessons is easy to follow and makes a lot of sense. This is one of the best books I have ever bought. The video clips are well done, very professional and easy to follow. They do add to the learning process and provide you a good overview of what's in the book. The book deepens your understanding of Sketchnotes and allows you to practice further.
Highly recommend this book.

Evie, I'm so glad my book was helpful in your drawing exploration. I really wanted that to be at the core of the book - encouraging people who feel they can't draw to give it a try (and be surprised at how much they can do!). Enjoy the book - thank you!
