Mindmapping offers a wonderful opportunity for personal expression and exploration; for developing a style of your own. One way to explore your creative side which is original and therapeutic is to create mind maps using paintbrushes.
Using a paintbrush slows your pace down; you can create in a relaxed manner, with deliberate action and contemplation. Whether you experiment by sticking to paintbrushes only or incorporate other media, you can encourage your artistic finesse and flair by creating original and personal mind maps; unique to you.
You can try many mediums; acrylic inks, acrylic paints, watercolours, coloured pencils and ink pens, to name only a few. Lettering offers another opportunity for expression; block letters, fancy fonts, even calligraphy; using brushwork or ink pens. Illustrations can also be created by brush as well as ink.
For examples of artistic mindmapping from around the world pay a visit to Mind Map Art where you can explore galleries, check blog posts (and subscribe), even rate mind maps and vote for your favourites.
In the above mind map I have endeavoured not to dictate a style; it is created as a summary of some of the many possibilities open to you when you move into mediums other than standard pens and pencils. (See also: Ideal Mindmapping Pens and Mind Map Tools of the Trade)
