WRITING ON MEDIUM
Content creation — not just writing — is about getting your voice across. Drawing is something that I have always been interested in, along with writing, so I thought I would add even more uniqueness to my articles.
Quick update: since writing this post (I put this on delayed publish) I have created multiple of my hand sketches for articles, and am quite pleased with the results — Picasso I am not — but happy I am.
Table Of Contents
I like Unsplash, But…
It is so easy to use the images on Unsplash — the integration with Medium is just fantastic, but…
Everyone is using it, you type in your search, a grid of pictures appears, and you choose one that sort of meets the criteria.
Few people will go to the second page of the results — it is just like the old joke:
“Where do you hide a body?
On the second page of a Google search result”
Hand-Drawn Stick figures Ahoy
I thought I’d give it a whirl, do some quick sketching, and see if my drawing improves with my writing, only time will tell.
If nothing else — it will be a truly unique image on both Medium and the internet at large.
I didn’t say I was any good at drawing, just that I was going to do it.
