How to draw a stratigraphic profile: simple version

I was going through my old vimeo account and found this video I made for a follower a year or so ago. She had sent me an ask requesting info about how to draw a strat profile for a homework assignment. It’s by no means an exhaustive class on profile illustration but I figure it might help out someone on fieldschool this year. My follower got an A+ on her assignment so it can’t be half bad! Good luck :)

Thomas Young

Graphite

Still plodding along with my final University project. Took it upon myself to try and emphasise the work Thomas Young contributed to deciphering the Rosetta Stone; which may have been overlooked by Young’s Modulus, his vision and colour theories and the Young- Laplace equation. Hence the graphite study of an envisioned work space.

I shall get round to scanning this as soon as possible.
