Yesterday while watching movies with my sick boys I spent some time working on a page of doodles as my warm-up project. It was done balancing paper on my knee so there are some wonky bits. But it's a doodle, not a drawing so I'm happy with it.
Do any of you remember filling pages with doodles in high school during boring classes? Making this page brought back a lot of fun memories.
After I was done I decided to color it. I used everything on this page - copics, water based markers, colored sharpies, pencil crayons... I thought it was a great opportunity to see what ran and what pens played nice. The finished page is less than perfect but I'm happy with all the discoveries I made.
The boys haven't seen a full page of doodles before and it really inspired them to make their own. I hope they take the time to sit down and make one. I'd love to see what cool things their little minds come up with.
