New sketchnotes from Javier Sandoval about Landscape Urbanism based on a video lecture of a course from the University of Pennsylvania.
I realized I wanted to have a page here on this site that’s just a gallery of sketchnotes, sketches and doodles that I’ve created. So, here’s the new Sketchnotes and Sketches gallery page – just stuff from the last few months.

I’ve followed Mike Rohde on his blogs and on Twitter for some time now so when he announced he would be penning a book about sketchnoting I eagerly anticipated the release. In a nutshell, the Sketchnote Handbook is the who, what, when, where, why, and how of taking visual notes. Mike explains it all clearly […]
A few weeks ago I posted some sketchnotes that Javier Sandoval created for the Alberto Cairo’s Introduction to Infographcis and Data Visualization online course. Javier wanted to share his sketchnotes of the 5 lectures of the course, including some thoughts about the experience in making them. I suggested to him that we post them here as […]
