Drawings by @CharleboisJoel

To develop your skills (and your confidence), draw a variety of people in activities.

You can make a rough draft of your sketchnote before sketchnoting the final copy.

Use Google Image Search to find some ideas and inspire yourself.

The secret to getting better?

Draw EVERYDAY!

Have in your possession something to jot down ideas : a tablet, a smartphone, papier, pen, notebook, etc. You could even draw while you’re waiting at the dentist or to pick up your child from soccer practice.

Keep ALL your work!

Don’t delete anything. Keep all your sketchnotes so that you can see your evolution as time goes by.
