This Sunday sketch assignment was a little difficult for me because I could not seem to make my notes make sense in visual form. I had to draw multiple drafts of my notes and change how I structured them so my notes would flow well. Even when I did this my notes still had gaps in the information needed to fully explain the topic. I have never thought about drawing out my notes since I thought it would take a lot of time and make it more difficult to understand the concepts. Even though visual notes are not my preferred form of note taking, doing these notes still allowed me to think deeply about the topics and information I was presented with.
While I was making my notes it was very difficult to translate big concepts into smaller pictures because they had so many little parts that all contributed to the overall understanding. To tackle these big concepts I broke them up into smaller pieces that I could explain with my image and then at the end group the images together under a specific concept. I think this thought process of breaking up large complex topics into smaller more manageable parts is necessary to fully understand difficult topics in a range of subjects.
