Sketchnotes Handbook Cameo

Mike Rohde, the creator of The Sketchnote Army blog and fantastic sketchnoter and illustrator, invited me and a select number of sketchnoters to create “profile” pages for his upcoming book, The Sketchnote Handbook. The instructions were to visually represent occupation, location, the story of how we came to sketchnoting, and then whatever tips and tricks we wanted to impart.

The Process

This project required me to learn how to do spot colors in Photoshop using CMYK for the final print process. It was a lot of fun and really inspired me to take my sketchnoting to new levels! It was nice to capture everything on two pages, versus capturing a how to process in a book, such as my Sketchnotes: A Field Guide for the Busy Yet Inspired Professional book. See below for a video of my inking process!
