Last Child in the Woods

Children in 2014 live a very different life than the one I did in the late 80s and early 90s. Instead of iPads or iPods, we had Nintendo and Super Nintendo. And we didn’t spend our days in front of them. We spent them outside playing wiffle ball, hide-n-seek, and putting lighting bugs in a mason jar. Last Child in the Woods is a book about the differences between today’s children and the ones from decades ago.

Cabins by Philip Jodidio

Cabins is a book that dwells into the idea of getting away from the noise of life in 2014. It’s about getting away from the vibrations, the dings, and the phone calls. As you explore the book, you’ll find different types of living environments that look to be minimal and isolated. I’ve often wondered about what it would be like to cut off all the gadgets and live in isolation for a few months. Most of my great ideas have come in the times where there is no music, podcasts, or social media. It’s come from when I’m sitting in silence. Get it on Amazon for $47.18.

The Sketchnote Workbook (Giveaway)

At the end of the week we’ll be giving away a copy of The Sketchnote Workbook to someone on our newsletter list. The Sketchnote Workbook is extremely impressive and its relevance extends far beyond the art and practice of sketchnoting itself.
