The Sketchnote Handbook is 5 Years Old!

My first book on sketchnoting, The Sketchnote Handbook

5 years ago, on December 1st, 2012, The Sketchnote Handbook was released into the world.

It’s been a whirlwind since then. The book has been a best seller, translated into German, Russian, French, Chinese, Czech, and Ukrainian. Pretty cool.

Thanks all for the support you’ve given to me, my books and my projects.

As a thank you. here’s my Sketchnote Mini Workshop (32 min) sharing the basics — a presentation I’ve given around the world in all sorts of settings, and is the foundational intro for my customized Sketchnote Workshops. I hope you find it as useful as my books.

Happy 5th Birthday, Sketchnote Handbook!
