Through The Magic Door

Distractions aplenty

Uniform doodling

I am one of those compulsive doodle types. If there is a pen in my hand I will doodle – anywhere and on anything, paper margins, receipts, napkins. You leave it in front of me and it will more than likely be doodled on.

However, I think I differ slightly when compared to other doodlers I have come across. Most are nonsensical doodlers, those who simply just draw squiggly lines around things or draw moustaches on people in the newspaper. I am not such a doodler. My doodles are ordered, simple and neat. What often starts off as a small thing in the corner of a piece of paper, rapidly spreads and grows into something much more. I love that about my doodles. I can easily get lost in my own little doodle world and before I know it I’ve been sat there for an hour expanding my masterpiece.

Doodling has no pressure. It begins and ends when and where you want it to. And that’s why I love it.

A recent doodle I did whilst sat in a cafe.

    Most famous “doodler” ever : Augustin Lesage (1876-1954), France.
    Google his name.
