SXSW Interactive 2010 Sketchnotes

I'm back from SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas and I took along my Moleskine and gel pen to sketchnote it. This year I decided to capture the experience around SXSW, including my flight, food, music and other experiences (not just panels).

Another difference this year: shooting photos of sketchnotes immediately after completion with my iPhone camera on Twitpic. I saw how popular this approach was during NaNoDrawMo and it was popular during SXSW. I enjoyed immediate responses from friends on Twitter, especially those who couldn't make it to Austin.

Here is the full set — you can see higher resolution versions on Flickr.

Beacon Lounge Sketchnote Gallery


My sketchnote gallery in the Beacon Lounge was well received. I heard great feedback from a variety of people, and the 4 large 18" x 24" posters sold at silent auction for $681, all donated to non-profits through the Beacon Lounge. Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who came to the Visual Note-Taking 101 panel with Dave Gray, Sunni Brown, Austin Kleon and me. We had a great time sharing with a wonderful room of people. I'll be posting more about that very soon.

Hey Gail thanks! And yes it's fine to use those Flickr images, I've licensed them all as creative commons so you can do just that. Thanks for including them on your post. :-)
