How Samantha Hahn’s Interview on Good Life Project Inspired a Project of My Own

Jonathan Fields’ interview with illustrator Samantha Hahn inspired me in a way that few interviews have.

You see, I’ve had a project in the back of my mind for a while now, one that combines my experience blogging about sketchnoting and my experience as a high school teacher.

Both of those threads – art-related blogging as well as formal education – appeared in Samantha’s story. Hearing that story gave me the final push that I needed to get that project of mine off of the ground.

So thank you, Samantha, for sharing your story. And thank you, Jonathan, for providing the environment for that story to be told and listened to. Here are the sketchnotes I took while listening to the interview:
