SketchNoting has quickly shifted from a strictly professional tool into a personal one, as demonstrated in many of my posts. It is how I synthesize, reflect and make sense of most everything in my life. So below you will find SketchNotes done based on impactful books I’ve read. Some are in the form of Sentence, Phrase, Word while others follow the book chapter by chapter. Still others represent the most poignant messages or are a simple rendition of the book itself. Hope you enjoy!

Love and light,


P.S. The first two are a throwback to my pen and paper days! đŸ™‚
