ONE YEAR AGO my first book, The Sketchnote Handbook was released into the world. In that year, the book has done phenomenally well.
Teachers love the book: sharing the techniques with their students. I'm working on one-day Sketchnote Workshops in Atlanta and in Milwaukee for 2014, and I've got a contract to create The Sketchnote Workbook for 2014 too!
UPDATE 12/4/2013: The Drawing is now CLOSED!
The drawing closed on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013 at 11:59PM. Winners will be announced a bit later on rohdesign.com.
