People have asked me how I practice my sketchnotes, and honestly one of the best ways I practice is by stealing.
There’s a long list of artists I follow and learn from, such as:
- Mike Rohde
- Austin Kleon
- Sean McCabe
- Wendy MacNaughton
- Eva-Lotta Lamm
When I’m stuck or want to try something different, I copy one of their pieces for practice. It’s a great way to stretch your skills without overloading your brain. When you gather inspiration from several sources, you’ll put everything together in your own unique way.
Whatever your work is, don’t be afraid to make their work your practice. Give credit where credit is due, but I believe you will stand on their shoulders then start to speak and create with your unique voice.
Want more sketchnotes like this? I send out 2-3 per week to my friends, including some I don’t post on the blog. Join us in the sidebar, and get in the starter course to learn how to do this yourself!
