For the love of doodling
I took up doodling in earnest when I was in college...using it to pass the time in my Business Law and Intermediate Accounting classes...which may shed some light on my less than stellar grades in those courses.
I doodle when riding the bus, when riding in the car, when sitting at a coffee shop, when talking on the phone, when writing letters, when sitting in church, etc.
I find calling something a doodle rather than a drawing takes the pressure off...if I am drawing I think my creation should be stunning and mistake free but if I am doodling it is no big deal...I was just getting the wiggles out and could recycle the creation at any time.
Sometimes when I come across a doodle I made months ago I think "wow! that looks really cool!" and sometimes I think "it's time to recycle that" but I never think "I wish I hadn't created that".
