I’m A Guest Doodler!


Last week I was excited to be the Guest Doodler (who knew there was such a thing!) for a website based in Japan for English with Katie. 

Katie Adler is a full time voice over artist in Japan and she is also the creator of the website and programs called English with

Katie.  We have been working together as she creates programs to help teach the English language to the Japanese community.

Follow her creative inspiration, Katie added a new feature to her blog posting with a Friday Doodle-Dee-Do.  She doodles the lesson for the week or invites in a guest doodler (that was me!).

Here’s my InfoDoodle featuring the English with Katie lesson of the week:

Sketchnotes featured on Plywood Blog

Jeff Shinberg and the Plywood People were excited about the illustrations I created for several of their speakers last week at the Plywood Presents conference here in Atlanta.

They featured all 7 of my sketchnote illustrations in their conference wrap up blog post.

I truly enjoyed the speakers and topics.  I’ve been thinking about my own programs and what can I help create and what problems can I help solve!

Here is a sketchnote illustration from Zack Arias, a photographer with a huge following.  He shares a great story about what it takes to really, truly create community.
