Love pens, paper and beautiful analog writing tools? Then you’ll love the SF International Pen Show! This annual event is a celebration of all things pen-like and lettering-ish, from fountain pens and handmade journals to sketching and calligraphy. Registration is now open for the show which is in-person from Fri Aug 26 – Sun Aug 28 in Redwood City, CA.
I’m very excited to be facilitating an intro course on Sketchnotes! This 2-hr session is limited to only 15 participants, so get your tickets soon (details below.) Note that you’ll need to have access to the main show to attend the workshop, so be sure to register for both. Read the details.
Here’s the class info…
Give your notes a makeover with Sketchnoting! Visual note-taking (aka: sketchnoting) is a fabulously fun technique used to transform simple notes into rich visual summaries. It’s a great way to capture ideas, remember them, and share them with others. Whether used as a personal tool or to share information with others, sketchnotes are a powerful way to create memorable, engaging info summaries while you also practice your unique visual style.
In this hands-on workshop, you’ll create a personal visual vocabulary, practice simple lettering techniques, and get familiar with structuring information into common layout patterns. Then you’ll bring it all together with a practice run capturing a sketchnote in real time, and further hone your skills with collaborative feedback and critique.
If you’re new to sketchnoting, this is a fun and fast way to get started. If you’re a seasoned sketcher or visual note-taker, you’ll advance your practice in a whole new way!Via SF Pen Show site
