I’ve been watching my process of developing simple metaphors to use in Sketchnoting. For me, here’s how it works:
- Look at a photo or detailed drawing of the object
- Draw about 10 different versions, working to find the right one, that is simple, memorable and pleasing to me.
- Let it sit for about 2 days
- Draw it on a white board.
- Wow! There it is.
Here’s how my ship finally came in. It reminded me of one I drew when we had to do a project on Columbus back in grade school.
