Create a camel face symbol

In drawings, Make something, Sketchnoting, Visual Thinking on August 23, 2011 at 1:49 pm

Sometimes I develop visual  metaphors simply because I want to draw those images. Like this camel face. Once I learn it, I can use a camel to stand for many things . . . going long distances. . . carrying burdens. . . trekking through unknown territories, etc.

  1. Camels have a fat triangle nose
  2. and floppy cheeks/lips
  3. and a rounded head
  4. with eyes on the side (because they are prey) and eyelashes that go every which way to keep out the sand
  5. and rounded ears, that should have fuzz on them
  6. and buck teeth just for fun.
Tomorrow, the body.
Camel. What else could it stand for?
