On Note

IDEA: Miniature illustrations on sheet music.

WHAT: Musical notation is a fascinating form of typography, with room for interpretation. The musician reads melodies and accompaniment, while the uninitiated can only see strange dots and quirky lines. Lena Erlich takes it a step further, she reads the notations as a landscape on which she can draw colourful stories in her very personal style.

WHY: Erlach started doodling what she saw around her on a page from a music book using coloured markers and pencils. She has since developed the concept using the spaces between the notes and staves to draw romantic or humorous scenes from the city and the surrounding countryside.
