I was doodling with my Sharpie Pen during a call this morning when I realized that this happens more frequently than not. Usually I don’t even notice I’m doing it when BAM! a tidal wave of ink has crashed upon my notebook!
So what can I do with these drawings?…
- They are not necessarily frame worthy and FOR SURE no one wants to buy these – I don’t even have 1,000 followers on Twitter yet! (so lame..I know)
- I know for a fact that I’m not the only person who does this (that’s right VP, I saw your Moleskin!)
- Later on at a meeting - I’m going to move my notebook over juuust a tad so you can see my doodle. I’m not going to actually show it to you; you’re going to “happen” to glance at it freely, uninhibited. “Yeah, that’s right dude look at it.. we both know that’s a pretty good doodle.”
*3 really has no relevance, I just wanted to know if anyone else has ever done this
Take a look at the edge of your note pad, planner, books, sticky notes, printed out power point slides, maybe even your hands or shoes. (go! look!) It’s something that just happens – something comes over you and you just draw! There are probably hundreds of little doodles all over the place and what do you do with those doodles? Nothing! There aren’t enough homes to share these one of a kind drawings, so why not show them some more love..
I’ve made a “Doodle” album on Facebook ( maybe down the road a better name will hit me). Here we can share our random doodles that typically don’t get much recognition- sometimes they are really dumb, inspirational, silly, random, pretty, whatever, but let’s show them off! This is a “no sliding the notebook” towards someone, this is a full out “Check out what I drew while you were yammering on about the new printer policy.” I’ve posted some of my doodles and will continue to Post your doodles too!
Here are a couple of mine you will find on Facebook:
These are a few of my favorite (Sharpie) doodlers:
