This sample video from the 20-part, 1 hour and 10 minute video edition of the Sketchnote Handbook offers an overview of the full video series.

In the book, I show you sketchnoting techniques for translating ideas into simple drawings and type; in the video I actually put you in the room with me so you can watch as I work and see how the drawings emerge from my pen and unfold on the page.

You'll see me in action as I demonstrate the drawing and sketchnoting techniques discussed in the book. Beyond the book, the video edition includes a series of episodes where I sketchnote a talk live — from start to finish — at an on-site event.

As I sketchnote the live talk, you can see what it's like to take visual notes in real time, how quickly I need to draw to capture big ideas, and the types of visual choices I make when taking notes with pictures.

You'll start sketchnoting by looking over my shoulder, but it won't be long before your colleagues and friends are stretching their necks during meetings to get a look at how your sketchnotes unfold. As you'll see, sketchnoting is fun to watch, but even more fun to do.
