Some folks take valium. I take a 3″ x 5″ notebook with 3 markers.
More than 3 markers and you make an already complex situation more complex.
Small books are the very best: limits the time it takes to do each page.
Take one to the doctor, your meeting with the IRS, that break-up dinner where you insist ” it’s not you —- it’s me”.

Doodling pulls on a part of your self that is ancient. It is the part of your brain that liked to make a hand mask with ELMER’S GLUE, mess with SILLY PUTTY, and draw with Crayola crayons in a hard and waxy way.

A lot of my doodles tend look like the 1940’s. I have no affinity for that time period but it does seem to have an affinity for me.
Doodling pulls things outta you like a mustard plaster. (There I go again… back to the ’40’s…)

It is very satisfying to make some things visible, if for no other reason than the fact you can throw a dart at ’em.

You can’t hit what you cannot see.

    I love these; they’re actually reminiscent of a style my grandfather worked in back in the 1930s. Absolutely beautiful stuff!

      much thanks! maybe I am channeling the 30’s instead of the 40’s? My dad was a movie buff so a lot of the images in my head are from old black and whiteS…and I love the novels of Jim Thompson for the NOIR feel………………..

    I love these but I am a bit worried about you. I do hope you are okay. Hope to take a class soon.

      Thanks for the concern: the work is tongue- in- cheek and to demonstrate how doodling has the ability to transcend the immediate moment through imagination.
