75% of drawing is THINKING and happens way before it reaches a paper. In this course I'll guide you towards practices to train your brain to think visually and take them to a canvas.
If you find yourself with ideas that you cannot draw or take a lot of time, SPEED drawing is your answer. Learn how to make quick sketches of the ideas in your head.

Compile all your learnings with my tried and tested processes, layouts and systems to build engaging sketchnotes that you and your audience will love.
The tasks and exercises have been designed to cover a wide range of topics and skill sets. They will not only help you learn more, but create work you can show-off ;p

Think in Visuals
If your thoughts are words and vague images, it's probably because you haven't given your brain a vocabulary to put your thoughts into visuals. To think Visually, we need to build the visual language and train our brain to use it.
Make quick drawings
You have ideas and you have visuals, but don't know how to get them on a paper? In this module, you will not just learn how to draw, but how to draw minimal visuals quickly.
Being able to draw quickly is not enough to make a real-time sketch-note. Learn how to establish filters, pick layouts and colours and weave all the elements together into one visual.
How to think in your own ways to draw like no one else
In this course, I will not teach you how I draw, but will share my processes and practices with you in a way that you can find and build yours too. By doing this you will not simply learn to draw like me, but will develop your own thinking and drawing styles that will define your work.
Draw complex concepts using simple metaphors and analogies
Metaphors and analogies are a huge part of our daily conversations and when used in visuals they add depth, layer, meaning and fun to the work.
Making self-Paced sketch-notes
While working for a client, your personal blog or a personal project you will have to distill content before you can start drawing them. Learn how to do this along with understanding briefs and feedbacks.
