I’ve been a fan of Dan Roam and his books (The Back of the Napkin (Expanded Edition): Solving Problems and Selling Ideas with Pictures and Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don’t Work
) since attending his session at VizThink ‘08, so when he started the Napkin Academy earlier this year I jumped on the Back of the Napkin bandwagon. About the same time I was starting to get into sketchnotes thanks to discovering Mike Rhode’s Sketchnote Army site. So, I thought it would be fun to try to capture one of Dans’ Napkin Academy webinars with sketchnotes. Here’s what I captured from the May 9th webinar, The Magic of Visual Thinking.
