Mnemonic Images for the English Alphabet

Does anyone else use images for letters? It’s not very manageable for memorizing a lot of letters, but the images are there if I need them. I took my images from the ICAO phonetic alphabet:

Most of the memory books dealing with this suggest the same subject to cover the alphabet. Christiane Stenger (A Sheep Falls out of the Tree) advocates cities (Atlanta, Birmingham, Cleveland, ...) or animals (Antelope, Baboon, Cougar,...). Jerry Lucas (Learning How to Learn) advocates several subjects, including sports team (Astros, Braves, Cowboys,...).
