I create large watercolor painted notes. I can effectively sketch topics in user experience and design, front-end engineering, and diversity plus inclusion. I've previously been hired to sketch AlterConf twice, Clarity, and Smashing Conf. I offer the notes to speakers as gifts at the conclusion of the event. Check out the archive of sketchnotes.
