Thanks for joining Sketchnote Boss Facebook Group
Our mission here is to learn to use our own visual vocabulary and some basic doodling skills to worship the Lord and document our faith.
Every week in the facebook group we have a challenge that will strengthen our doodling skills and help us get into the Word with scribbles and doodles.
I am currently working on a Quickstart guide for new members. It will take you from scribbles to doing a doodle devotional in 7 days. It will be coming out soon so watch for more information.
The cool thing about Sketchnoting is that you don’t need a lot of supplies. We draw, and add a little color. We don’t elaborate sets of stamps or stencils. You can certainly use them, but they are not part of our basic gear. Here are a few supplies you might want to gather:
- Blank Sketchbook, Dot Grid book or Graph paper – please try to avoid lined paper – you will continue to write more and doodle and draw less. Here are some choices:
Blank sketchbook – Canson Mixed Media book 7 x 10
Dot Grid Journal – comes in an array of colors.
2. A black permanent pen. You just want to make sure that the pen is waterproof so the ink won’t run when you use a highlighter or water color. Here are a few pens that work really well:
3. Colors – color pencils, OR markers OR watercolors OR Highlighter.
Here are a few of our projects so far
We drew the icons for the creation story
We learn to draw simple icons to use when we do sermon sketechnotes, bible study and doodle devotionals.
Here’s an example of a Sermon Sketchnote
Here’s a doodle devotional we did after our study of El Kanna – The Jealous God
