I used to have one or (at the most) two books on my nightstand. I started a book, then finished it before I began the second book.
I would like to invite you to the1-DayBlue Photo Challenge, a challenge to become meta cognitively aware of the process of documentation.

Together with Andrea Hernandez (USA), Chic Foote (New Zealand) and Silvana Meneghini (Brazil), we will practice what we preach and amplify teaching and learning via a Twitter Chat.
I have come a long way by studying and learning from other sketchnoters: their techniques, their tools, their thinking process, their signature people, objects and metaphors.
