How To Sketchnote Travel
I’ve captured three ways to prepare yourself for sketchnoting on the road:
1. Pick a Great Notebook – I love Moleskines but there are many other great notebooks out there. Pick one which will work well for your needs (e.g. maybe a pocket notebook is more likely to come along when you need to capture a thought). Bring a backup, just in case.
2. Carry Several Good Pens – Nothing beats writing with an awesome pen. Find one that works for you and then carry spare pens and refills so you aren’t stuck without ink in the middle of capturing your travels.
3. Take Photos Too – In DC I used my camera for shooting things I wanted to draw later on in the hotel room and also used it to capture images of my notebook in case it was lost or damaged during the trip. You might even consider posting notebook shots online or emailing them to yourself immediately, in case your camera gets lost too.
