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.
♥ Interview with BBC Newcastle Nick Barnes: when Notes blend Commentary and Art - From my sister site, Sketchnote Army, Mauro Toselli and I had a chance to ask Sunderland Football Club's BBC announcer Nick Barnes about his sketchnote prep and capture of football games. Fantastic!
♥ 50+ Awesome Sketchnoting Resources - Design Lounge has gathered a TON of resources on sketchnoting in one place. Check it out!
♥ I DRAW MANGA Sketchbook & Reference Guide - This Kickstarter project from Matt Marrocco aims to teach you how to draw Manga style with a reference book. There's still a chance to get in on the campaign!
♥ JetPens Guide to Drawing Pens - I try not to share JetPens guides in every issue of the Dispatch, but I can't seem avoid it - their articles are too good! This guide to drawing pens is especially useful for sketchnoters.
