No. Knock, Knock.
No! Knock, Knock.
Who is there??!!
This isn’t a joke! I’m knocking on this door.
Oh! How did that door get into our blog post?
I put it there because it’s important.
Oookay, please come in then.
Um, can I ask you a question?
Yes, what is it?
Why did you put a door in this blog post?
Oh! Because I wanted to demonstrate how important art can sometimes be to onomatopoeia.
Well, remember how I said the right words can make a difference to a picture?
So, the same thing sometimes works in reverse. The right art can make a difference to certain words.
I don’t get it.
OK, let’s try another example.
What are you kicking me for?
Hey, stop doing that!
Why? I’m not doing anything wrong.
Ow! That just sounds painful!
Well, it’s not. Because I’m kicking this ball. See?
Oh I get it… I didn’t know what you were kicking, so I assumed it was me.
Exactly. Without any picture or description, there’s no way to know what is happening. So, the reader starts guessing the most obvious.
So sometimes, the art is as important as the words.
But sometimes, it’s not.

I’d like to take a quick break from my regular blogging to give a shout out to Canva.com.
I've been including several images from Canva, and suddenly realized that I haven't linked all of them back to their site. So I want to thank them for their great user-friendly software, and let you know all about how easy it is.
Whether you opt for ‘pro’ or select single images, you won’t be sorry with the results. They have graphics and pics for all your web publishing needs. I highly recommend them, and feel bad for not giving credit where it’s due. So please, check them out!
