The Sketch Effect!

“With sketchnoting, I realized that I remembered more from my meetings and when I shared the sketches, people were more engaged with my ideas.”

William C. Warren (with Alejo Porras) from @thesketcheffect

I sometimes get asked how I got into creating sketchnotes and what I usually say involves a long and rambling diatribe about me drawing octopuses on tithing envelopes and eventually ends with me saying “Does that make any sense I feel like I’m just rambling?”

What I *should* say is exactly what William expresses here in the The FUNdamentals of Sketchnoting course – it’s a better way to remember and then express my ideas.

I’ve met some really awesome people from creating this account and a few of them are from the sketch effect so when they came out with a sketchnoting course it was a no-brainer purchase for me. I’ve spent *hundreds* of sketchy sermons dollars on courses and ebooks and mentorships and frankly didn’t see much return from it. What I found in this course are short, tactical techniques that I can start applying to my sketchnotes immediately in an effort to expand my skills and make more of an impact. 

I’m not being paid to say any of this; I just think they’re cool people doing cool work that I’m excited about and I appreciate how awesome they are. Thanks Sketch Effect!

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.
