And while you’re at his website, what you’ll also really enjoy are his notebooks!

I think Mike Rohde first coined the phrase and the practice of creating beautiful illustrated notes, but lots of others are getting on the bandwagon, so much so that the design website Core77 is introducing a regular feature on their site, focusing on various examples of sketchnotes. The ones below are by Mike Rohde, Craighton Berman and Austin Kleon. [...]

  5. what size is that red notebook? 4×6?
