The point of making up pictures, as with using new vocab in sentences, is to engage your own imagination. For rote memorization there's nothing as effective as putting it all to a tune. That's how we all STILL remember the alphabet -- just watch anyone who has to do a lot of alpha filing, and eventually you'll find them humming the alphabet tune. Music makes a generally reliable neural pathway, gives you a straight path to the data.
