How To Sketchnote Without Drawing

If your fear of drawing is keeping you from taking visual notes, then fear no more.

In this episode of Verbal To Visual Video I show you a no-drawing approach to sketchnoting, and share a few examples of how I have used that approach in my own work.

Imagery is just one component of the visual note-taking process, and there’s still a whole lot that you can do without it.

Watch the video to find out how, then put it to use in your own work.
