HALFWAY DONE! This weekend I was able to complete the sketching phase of The Sketchnote Workbook. It was a long, tough process but rewarding when I put the last pencil stroke on the last page of my sketches.
While sketches are not a completed book, they are the map that helps me figure out how to fit everything I want into the pages and what to illustrate to make that happen.
I’m planning to create a separate printed book and PDF ebook from the pencil sketches I did for The Sketchnote Workbook and one for the Handbook, too. If you’re interested in either or both of these books, [please let me know](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
### Inking Up Next
Now that the book has been completely sketched out, I’ll ink up all of the elements I need to build the pages, using the sketches as my map.
I’ll be capturing the inking process with a short video, much like I did in [update 7](http://rohdesign.com/weblog/2014/4/23/the-sketchnote-workbook-update-7-sketching-the-workbook-vide.html), to share in a future update, so look for that and wish me luck as I ink!

I’ve taken the design from the sweatshirt I’m wearing in the Sketchnote Workbook video and have created a two-color aqua and white version on dark gray tri-blend shirts at Cotton Bureau:
### Mailing List
If you’re reading this on the site, you may not know I have a mailing list that sends these Workbook updates and my other posts right to your inbox. You can sign up for that newsletter right here.
It really helps me out if you pre-order The Sketchnote Workbook at Amazon. It ensures your copy is delivered as soon as it's ready, and it gives Peachpit a decent idea of how popular the book will be. Win-win!
Thanks again for following along.
