👁️ Let’s take a peek inside:


Hi, I'm Ashton

After taking page after page of notes in meetings and lectures, I eventually realize that I had absorbed almost nothing. I was frustrated and anxious, feeling like I couldn’t keep up.

Even though I barely knew how to draw, I tried my first sketchnote in an attempt to bring more fun back into my learning process. My mind was blown; it was fun, it was easy - and I remembered the material!

Since then, I’ve made sketchnoting into a career as a graphic recorder, or as I prefer, a professional sketchnoter. I’ve used these same techniques to live-illustrate over 3000 seminars, lectures, and meetings all over North America. I’ve worked with corporations from Microsoft to Amazon.

Now, on a mission to teach others how to harness their creativity, embrace imperfection, and capture information in new, powerful, and fun ways we bring you Sketchnote School!
We believe that sketchnoting is more than just sketching and note-taking.

It's a playful skill that you can polish to make continuous learning easier in every aspect of your life. For lifelong learners, Sketchnote School is the learning community that will aid your learning progress, so you can understand, retain, and share complex information with others.
