Dispatch: Green Bay Packer NFL Sketchnotes

Packers seahawks

It's Football Season! I've been having fun sketchnoting this year's Green Bay Packer NFL football games since experimenting last year sketchnoting the NFL Championship game (yuck) and Super Bowl XLIX (great game).

It's a great way to document the game experience and let go of the stress of being a fan who can only watch what happens. I first shared sketchnoting sporting events in The Sketchnote Workbook.

I've been using my Hobonichi Techo Logbook to capture games, creating a title before the game starts and documenting each major event as the game unfolds. If you have a favorite sport, try sketchnoting it!

Did you know I teach private sketchnote workshops at places like University of Michigan, mcgarrybowen NYC and Sibley Hospital in DC? I'd love to teach sketchnoting to your team too. Interested? Let's talk.
