078: Mind Palace


Have you seen the Sherlock episode about his "Memory Palace"?



In the series, Sherlock stores visual clues from investigations in a mental database, recalling and analyzing key details to solve mysterious cases.

It's a modern spin on an old memory technique, known as the Method of Loci.


I am fascinated by this concept.

And spatial memory, in general.

This connection between memory and place is partly what inspired these two exercises in the drawing series.




I hope you'll give them a try!
