Hello friends and happy new year! (Not to mention new decade…how’d that happen so quickly?)
As we close out the year, I thought I’d share the sketchnoting videos from the past year that: 1) are some of my favorites; and 2) seemed to resonate with you as well.
Here’s a chance to remind yourself of those ideas from earlier in the year and catch up on those that you might have missed!

Get a Jump-Start on 2020
I hope that the videos above give you a bit of momentum with your sketchnoting efforts as we wrap up one year and start the next.
If you’d like an even bigger jump-start on your sketchnoting skill development in 2020, here are two suggestions:
1) Take part in the development of our next course: Digital Sketchnoting. We’re having a kick-off webinar for that course on January 15th and I’d love to see you there!
2) Get access to bonus resources connected to each of the YouTube videos that I make by becoming a Patron. There you’ll find extra downloads, behind-the-scenes updates, and monthly Q&As.
Here’s to lots of sketchnoting in the coming year (and decade)!
