How to draw tech sketchnotes

I attended Denise Yu's tech doodling and sketchnoting workshop in August and have wanted to make a video documenting my learning ever since. Finally got around to publishing the video this month. Here it is:

Key takeaways:

  • 3 components of tech sketchnotes: People, emotions, and layouts and banners
  • How to draw people: stick people, tooth people, star people.
  • How to show emotions: Use the 3X3 matrix of eyebrows and smiles
  • Layouts: Grid or path
  • Use low-fi metaphors

Try out Denise's techniques and let me know if you enjoyed them as much as I do :)
