In short, this means you can share and remix any sketchplanations, and you’re free to use them for non-commercial purposes as long as you provide attribution.

I'm also absolutely cool with you using some sketchplanations in:

  • your book
  • a work or consulting presentation
  • your course
  • your LinkedIn post for your company
  • your Instagram story or post
  • your article on Medium
  • a magazine or newspaper article
  • your email newsletter or the like... long as you give credit and, ideally, don't remove the Sketchplanations logo from the corner of the sketches. In fact, I'd love you to use them to make a point, help explain something for others, further your career, or teach something to your students. That's what they're for!

For those kinds of purposes, if you're in a position to support me on Patreon or buy me a coffee to say thanks, that's always appreciated but absolutely not required.

You are not free to use them for commercial purposes like publishing a collection with a lot of sketchplanations, reselling them, or some giant marketing campaign, billboard, selling t-shirts and the like. However, if you’d like to, great! Just get in touch and we can discuss it.

You can use the download link on each sketch page to get higher-resolution images if you need them. Some older ones may not be much higher, feel free to get in touch and I may have a higher-res version:

When providing attribution here’s what I think works well:

Do link directly to the unique link of the particular sketchplanation if appropriate. If you can't add a link please add a .com on the end

Thanks for checking. I appreciate it. And happy sharing!
