The Sketchnote Handbook 1st Birthday Giveaway (CLOSED)

ONE YEAR AGO my first book, The Sketchnote Handbook was released into the world. In that year, the book has done phenomenally well.

Birthday TSH

In the past 12 months I have "earned out" my advance (September), the book has received over 100 reviews on Amazon and I'm continually seeing new readers sharing their sketchnotes in social media.

Teachers love the book: sharing the techniques with their students. I'm working on one-day Sketchnote Workshops in Atlanta and in Milwaukee for 2014, and I've got a contract to create The Sketchnote Workbook for 2014 too!

UPDATE 12/4/2013: The Drawing is now CLOSED!

The drawing closed on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013 at 11:59PM. Winners will be announced a bit later on rohdesign.com.
