How to Doodle a Milestone



Step 1

If someone asked you to visualize a milestone, what would you draw? How about a stone with a flag that symbolizes our milestone. Begin by drawing the outer edges of your rock. No strict rules here. Just draw jagged lines. Notice how the base of the stone is relatively flat, and the top is pointy.


Step 2

Add some more details to your stone to make it look more like a stone. Notice in the example the various lines used to create these details. Again, no fixed rules here. You can copy the example or use your own variation of the lines.

Let’s now stick a pole into the stone, on which we will hang our flag. Use a couple of straight lines to draw your pole. Then at the top of the pole, doodle an oval shape. Notice the length of the pole and the size of the oval shape in the example.


Step 4

Use curved lines to draw your flag. Curved lines are used in this way to show that the flag is waving in the wind. You could, of course, draw the flag using straight lines. This would look more like a v-shape. That’s fine as well. Feel free to experiment.

And finally, add some color to your doodle. And there we have it. This is our visual representation of a milestone. Yes, we could have added some words to the flag or stone. For instance, we could have written the word MILE on the flag. That way, it would instantly be recognized as a milestone. However, even without the words, it certainly gets the idea across that this is a milestone. How many other ways can you think of to visualize and milestone? Or could you modify this doodle slightly and still get the same message across?
