•Back to Writing with Pictures
One particular horse kept coming up in their talk, and
I suggested if they had a picture of Jimmie on this horse, we could try
drawing that and see how that worked. Well, to make a long story shorter
. . . they were very pleased and decided that the picture described it
all and needed no explanation. This has been twenty years ago and every
time I see one the family they still comment on the appropriateness of
Another family in Roundsport had a death of a young man with a background in horse and ranching who had always wanted to live and ranch in the mountains. We drew a picture of the mountains with a horse and rider in the foreground with 3 tiny little horses way up on the face; the family liked that it showed his dream that he had not the time to realize without downplaying his life up to that point.
What I am trying to say is that many of our customers did not know how to say in writing what they desired to put across, but a specific drawing would satisfy their desire, and it really did not matter if it was specific or not for the general public. Most of us are not a Longfellow or a Hemingway and space is limited on stone.
