Love the power of a hand-drawn image?

Are you a visual thinker but consider yourself rubbish at drawing? Are you doodling in meetings and want to improve your range of images? Are you an experienced graphic recorder who wants some focused time to try out some new techniques?  Anyone who loves the power of hand-drawn images and text is welcome, regardless of ability.

Want to practice your skills in a friendly, focused group?

We’re a community of practice. We learn by doing. We iterate to improve. There are no rules about what’s good or bad. If you come, you can practice in a friendly, fun and focused place. There’s a structured agenda: we warm up, we practice the basics and then we sketchnote an interesting talk from YouTube.  We talk about what we learned and if we want to, we can share our work and get input from others like us.

What to expect

Expect to be challenged and inspired, supported and motivated. Expect to have fun and be surprised by how much you can improve with a couple of regular hours of practice.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
