Today’s guest post by Kate Marshall should appeal to all the art journalers out there… an interesting twist on the idea!
Did I tell you all about the Best Magazine Ever, also known as Strange and Charmed? Well now!
Back in the fall, my friend Alexis came up with the idea for an online magazine for women of the Millenium, who are as comfortable with paper products as they are with electronics, and also enjoy the geeky, the chic, and all things quirky. Recently, Alexis wrote about sketch-note supplies on our companion blog.
I wanted to throw it out there to QV readers: have you tried taking sketchnotes instead of regular notes? The concept is basically what it sounds like: instead of just strictly writing notes about a topic, you can sketch them out with doodles, drawings, etc. Blogger Mike Rohde recently wrote a book about sketchnotes, which I can’t wait to read. I always feel like I can’t draw but learning about sketchnotes seems doable. And yes, I would totally use my fountain pens to do it 🙂
