Content: 10 rules of Ikagi
I’ve normally seen Ikigai as those overlapping circles, so Dr Lewis’s sketchnote caught my attention.
I’d be curious which of these rules you think you could do better at?
Style: Rob's path
Rob Dimeo
My sketchnote of the paper on the "Drawing Effect." Nice report showing that drawing helps with memory.
I love the way Rob uses the path style sketchnote layout. In a way, it’s just three columns, but adding that faint background line gives it momentum.
It’s very easy in Procreate or another layer based app. Just select a large brush, choose a colour similar to your background, add a layer underneath and draw the pattern. You can add the path at the start or the end.
Here’s mine based on an article on neurodiversity from Ness Labs.

Every sketchnoter hits a creative rut eventually.

Many wait it out, but some know quicker ways to break free.

Here are the 5 top tips I've learned over the last 8 years to bring new life to your sketchnotes. 👇🧵
So I decided to try something very different and share some sketchnote tips on instagram.
