I WAS IN PRAGUE for the iCON Conference keynote and workshop with my wife last weekend. We had a fantastic time in that beautiful city. As a super-duper bonus, I met my good friend and Sketchnote Army Chief Operating Sketchnoter, Mauro Toselli and his better half, Betta.

The keynote and workshop went well, I signed a stack of books. met great people and appeared on Czech TV Nova's morning show! Mauro, Betta, Gail and I had several afternoons to explore Prague. It was a wonderful weekend.

Here are a few favorite photos, for more, visit my full album on Flickr.
