Emily Mills and the Sketchnote Academy

“There is no place for perfectionism in life and that goes especially for your visual notes!” @emily_a_mills

I had the really cool opportunity to talk to my internet fried Emily Mills from the @sketchnoteacademy yesterday about…well…sketch notes! There’s a video coming soon and I tried my best to actually look at the camera and not say “right, right” every 12 seconds or so. 😅

I’ve received some questions about how to do what I do here and it started for me with 2 books; one of those being Emily’s “The Art of Visual Notetaking.” I still reference it quite a bit to try out some of the techniques that she outlines in there! 

She creates some awesome sermon sketch notes (and other notes as well!) I try hard not to compare and just marvel at how God uses each of us in totally different ways to accomplish amazing things. 

I love the idea of whole community of people creating and using the talents God has given them and they’ve developed to glorify His name.

Anyway, if you didn’t know Emily before; now you’ve been introduced to a cool person! 🙌

Illustrator and Sketchnoter. I prefer pizza over tacos. I like to draw things without fur much more than things with fur. When presented with two choices I pick the one that's less complicated.
