Visual Vocabulary – Music: Playing the Drums

The note card sketch below of the phrase playing the drums is part of an ongoing effort to build my Visual Vocabulary.  Each week I come up with a theme (this week it’s music) and every weekday I post a new sketch of a term or phrase connected to that theme.

In addition to helping me build my own visual vocabulary, my hope is that these small sketches might serve as a resource for others who are new to visual note taking and are trying to develop their skills.  If you want to check even more resources, then head over to the Visual Note Taking Resources page.

  1. Hi Doug.. your sketches are super. I make my own way as a journalist in Washington DC, and I’m putting together a private Web site to provide my writing samples to employers and freelance clients. I would like to use some of your sketches as tiny icons to link to various clips on my site. Is there a fee for this use? Of course I would attribute you as the artist on my site where appropriate. Please let me know…thanks
