Welcome to the NL Sketchnoting, Graphic Recording, and Visual Thinking podcast where we celebrate the lives and work of visual thinkers and allow them to showcase things they are enthusiastic about!
Today, I'm talking to none other than Mike Rohde, a designer, author, illustrator and sketchnoter, living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with a passion for simple and usable design solutions.
Mike is sort of my hero, because as you know: I like to sketchnote.
Interestingly, in this interview we don't actually talk about sketchnoting until about half-way. We talk first about what got Mike there.
Want to learn more about sketchnoting? Read Mike's blog, his tweets, and of course his books, The Sketchnote Handbook and The Sketchnote Workbook. Also, check out The Sketchnote Army for examples of awesome sketchnotes around the world of all different skill-levels.
Pro-tip: Sign-up for Mike's newsletter to get tips on sketchnoting and creativity for free!
