Visual motifs. An exercise.

For some time I’ve been wanting to create a series of visual motifs which might also be visual metaphors. Why? For drawing, for thinking more visually, or for talking about something.

Time to start. So that it’s achievable and fun (for me!), I’m making up my own rules for this excercise:

1. The motif needs to be simple to understand, simple (fun) to draw, simple to use.
2. The concept or idea or word being conveyed is just something ordinary, everyday.
3. It’s allowed to be a bit whimsical or a bit funny or a bit quirky or even a bit mysterious. Why? Because.
4. By the end of 2014, I’d like to have created at least 52 visual motifs.
