    Why? Why did I wait this long to get @rohdesign’s Sketchnotes? Encouraging me to push past my dread of paper.

      @mschechter why doesn’t matter now that you have the book. :-) Keep me posted on how you like the book!

        @mschechter @rohdesign Welcome to my life, Michael. Just got the book and started doodleing like in 3rd grade (which is kind of awesome…)

          @khs @rohdesign While I may need to work my way up to adding drawings it certainly encourages me to indulge more in playing with text. Just realized that the Passive Aggressive Manifesto started this way… http://moby.to/de25we

            @khs @rohdesign I never really drew as a child. Always had manual dexterity issues that led me to shy away from it.

              @rohdesign really enjoying it, especially as the embodiment of the person who can’t draw and takes awful notes :)
              rohdesign
                @mschechter @khs excellent to hear you’re both exploring this! Remember to be ok with it being a slow process.

                  @mschechter dude, you made my day! I have a 2-star Amazon review for you to leave a comment on. :-)
                  rohdesign
                    @khs BTW you made my day too. :-)

                      @rohdesign @khs I didn’t realize that had been until I read this :)

                        @rohdesign let me at ‘em :) Out of curiosity, have you collected any Sketchnotes from true beginners who have bad handwriting and can’t draw?
                        rohdesign
                          @mschechter heh - you can find it pretty easily here http://rohdesign.com/amazon-reviews but there are 4 comments already - might be piling on.

                            @rohdesign just finished it. Really loved it even though I will struggle eternally just to make something bad :) Out of curiosity, do you think you’ll ever adapt this concept to meeting notes? I already see how it will impact my own.

                              @mschechter @rohdesign Oh I have an ever increasing collection that fits those criteria if you want them!!

                                @rohdesign Hi! Do you know why they don’t sell this (http://amzn.to/X287IV) on amazon.co.uk? They sell the book or the DVD, but not together… I really want it! Wait or order from the US and risk it taking ages and being stopped at customs?
                                ianh
                                  @mschechter @rohdesign I will but only so you know they'll worth doing even if you're not an artist. I'll put something together tomorrow when I'm at work and have my scanner.

                                    @mschechter @rohdesign As promised (threatened) here are a couple of sketchnotes that can serve as a bad example. I can assure you though that I’m getting better, so it’s true that anyone can do it. http://bit.ly/WJMRaZ

                                      @ianh @rohdesign These are way better than I could muster! Going to have to up my game :)

                                          @mschechter @rohdesign I'm sure you're not. And also, you have a great blog. Always look forward to reading what you've written.

                                            @ianh this are great man! Remember that sketchnotes are primarily for you first - if they work to help you remember it doesn’t matter if they are framable. @mschechter

                                                @rohdesign @mschechter Thanks! I promise I won’t send you every one but here’s one I did this morning using TED to practice. You’ve re-ignited my passion for pen and paper - thank you! http://bit.ly/Wz6Gkv

                                                  @ianh @rohdesign Nicely Done! Hell of a job on the sketch of Powell!

                                                    @rohdesign @ianh No doubt, but as I said in my Amazon Review, I have a feeling this will help me more in traditional setting like meetings with more of an emphasis on typography.

                                                      @mschechter @ianh good to know Michael. I’d love your feedback for Sketchnote Podcast topics I can cover for your needs - here’s what’s up now - http://rohdesign.com/sketchnote-podcast

                                                        @ianh just marked that for Sketchnore Army use - if you’re ok w/ that. @mschechter

Lots of arrows though! I've been looking forward to the next meeting... that says it all!

                                                            @rohdesign I shot you an annoying email with my requests/suggestions :)
