As I can’t stress enough to mention, you can use sketchnotes to visualize basically everything. I always wanted to use it for a song, so this year I decided to sketchnote a christmas song. I wanted to sketch one of the not so boring ones like Silent Night (Sorry!) and so I ended up sketching Jingle Bells. That was actually quite an interesting thing to do because I really learned a lot about it. Like: It was not intendend to be a christmas song in first place but more of a sleigh race song. And if you listen to the lyrics you see, there is not much mention of christmas or holidays in it. It is more about sleigh crashs and picking up girls. Funny thing though: People barely ever sing the other three verses.
It also was the first song to be broadcasted from space in 1965.
There are a few things I really do not like to draw. One of them is horses! I hate drawing horses a lot and this song has lots of horses in it. But hey, I good way to practice it, so I drew them as simple as possible.
Anyways, sketching a christmas song is a fun thing to do! You learn a lot and you have a nice christmas card to send to people in the end.
Happy holidays, peops!
