You might think, "I cannot draw" or "I don't have talent." And maybe you are right. However, the good news is: sketchnoting is not about art. It's not about performing as an artist or comparing yourself to famous artists. It's not about perfection. It is about communication. Sketchnotes help people all over the world to better remember what they heard, regardless of their drawing skills. Anna talks with two of our Tech Community's celebrated sketchnoters, Luise Freese and Rebecca Jackson - and Frank the bunny. 

Take on our Sketchnote Challenge! Send us a sketchnote of your Day/Week-in-the-life! Tag @TheUptakePod, Luise and Rebeeca and we'll share it!
