All next week, illustrator and senior UX/UI designer Andy McNally will be sketchnoting Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference for us, starting with the big keynote on Monday.
It is time to get ready for the 2017 WWDC. What should I pack? What pens should I bring? OK, maybe I’m the only one who has to think about what pens and colored markers I need to bring. However, it is critical to remember all of the chargers and cables for our Apple devices.
In this sketchnote, I’m just capturing my own thoughts, rather than a live event. Having the luxury of more time means that I could create a concept for the sketchnote on my iPad Pro using the Tayasui Sketches iOS app (Tayasui also offers a Mac app now).
Using the iPad allowed me to practice what I wanted to sketch first, and also to rearrange the items if I did not like the position or spacing. Practice really helps prepare for sketchnoting an event in real time.
I later went back and created a digital version on my iPad Pro using Adobe Illustrator Draw to see if I could give the sketchnote a little more of an Adventure Time feel and vibe, since the note is an homage to the cartoon’s opening theme song.
