The Sketchnote Workbook Update 9 - Inking, Building, Video & T-Shirts!

I’M DEEP inking illustrations, getting ready to scan and use them in combination with my manuscript and submitted samples to build The Sketchnote Workbook.(


Here’s a brief video I shot of the inking process, if you’re curious:

By the end of the month, I need to have inked pieces done and have the pages for the body of the book done. It’s been a challenge with work and family obligations. The good news: my wife is recovering well, though slowly, from her back surgery.

I hope I can pull this off.

### Final Video Shoots Ahead
Brian and I will be shooting the final two videos this week (8 and 9). All of the scripted voiceovers have been recorded, which leaves the ad-lib voiceovers I’ll do as I watch myself work in rough cuts of the videos.


We’re getting close on the video, and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out in Brian’s final edits. I think you’ll love all of the process-of-sketchnoting work captured in the video. I can't wait for you to enjoy it.

### 70 Sketchnote Icon T-Shirts Sold!
Yes! 70 t-shirts sold at [The Cotton Bureau]( You guys are pretty amazing. If you’re one of the buyers, your t-shirts should be arriving in a few weeks. I'd love to see your photos on social media. Thanks for your support!

### Limited Edition Boxed Set
Several readers were interested in a boxed set once both books are published. The books would be signed and the enclosing box would have hand-drawn illustrations in limited quantities (maybe 25). If this sounds interesting, [drop me a note](, and I'll add you to my pre-interest list.

OK, back to work!
