It's a cold, but sunny spring in Milwaukee, and I'm excited to be doing the Dispatch again! If you're new to this newsletter, welcome.
Here's what I've been up to:
I've been testing out a visual work schedule (see in the photo above). The idea of creating a daily visual schedule came from Cal Newport. I've adapted it for the last few weeks as a way to keep my workday on track in my Bullet Journal. It works great!
I've been considering what to do next with the 30-Day Sketchnote Challenge book project now that the book with Peachpit is cancelled. I've spoken to other publishers and have been considering my options. I've made no decisions yet, but whatever I choose to do, you'll hear about it here first. Stay tuned!
It feels great to be back!
♥ Strategic Paper Replacement: iPad Pro & Apple Pencil - Joe, the Gentleman Stationer, goes in depth on the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil as a paper and pen replacement. I won't ever eliminate pen and paper, but the iPad Pro and Pencil are fantastic drawing tools.
♥ The Doodle Institute's Free Doodle Video Collection - My friend and fellow doodler, Diane Bleck, offers a free course called Sketchbook Basics to get you started drawing in a sketchbook.
♥ Custom Sketchbooks from Book Block - Have you ever wanted to create a custom sketchbook from your own art or photograph? Well, now you can and for prices starting at just £10 (about $15).
Private Sketchnote Workshops
I've taught private sketchnote workshops at universities like Ross School of Business at The University of Michigan; agencies like mcgarrybowen in NYC; and institutions like Sibley Hospital in Washington DC. I'd love to teach your team too. Let's talk.
