Things To Do In A Coffee Shop - Verbal To Visual - Doug Neill

Things To Do In A Coffee Shop

I’m kind of in love with coffee shops.

Back when I was substitute teaching I’d go straight to a coffee shop after school (usually this one), find something to sketchnote, and then share it on The Graphic Recorder.

Things To Do In A Coffee Shop (1) - Verbal To Visual - Doug Neill - drink coffee, read a book, have a conversation, get stuff done, fall in love, make good art, start a business

Now that I work from home full time, coffee shops have become a necessary oasis of people, background noise, and caffeine.

Consider this mini-movie a thank you to all of those shops (and those who work in them) that have been a source of inspiration. I’ve done my best to buy hourly and tip well.

Special thanks to Chris Diego. I didn’t plan on shooting today’s video from Khaveology, but when Chris saw that I was carrying camera gear and started asking questions, it gave me the confidence and inspiration to shoot this video.
