My doodles tend to start in the center and spiral outward. The flower-like shape in the lower right began with the circle in the center. The shapes with rectangular centers were begun by making quick zig-zags between two fingers. Continue reading

This one reminds me a little of a Japanese noren - the half curtain that hangs over some doorways. In part, that may be because the color of the ink is close to the traditional blues you see in some Japanese textiles. Continue reading

The angles of an envelope present an inviting angle to fill with doodles. Like the lines of a legal pad, the boundaries created by the folds provide a structure at the beginning. Continue reading

There are times when it seems best to not take a doodle all the way to it's logical conclusion. Continue reading

Once forms start to emerge in my doodling. I'm then feel the compulsion to color between the lines. Although shading would be a better term for it. These doodles were the result of another client call. You can see my notes: "People interacting with technology." Fascinating. Continue reading

Here's a good one from the other day (I'm back to daily doodling but not quite up to daily posting it seems). This one makes me think of a ray gun. Continue reading

Didn't get much doodling in on my vacation. Stayed away from pen and paper. Seems it's only when I should be thinking about something else that the doodles start flowing... Continue reading

It's been a weak couple of weeks for posting; the earthquake in Fukushima and several time-consuming projects derailed my almost-daily posts - and my family vacation next week will keep me out of reach of a scanner. But I did manage to scan this one on Friday. Hard to see,... Continue reading

The upper right corner of a legal pad is always the sweet spot for doodling. Something about the way the double vertical red lines intersect the blue lines just frames it up right for me. Continue reading

Today was actually a low output day for me. I did manage to almost cover this post-it note pad. I noticed that it has a different feel depending on which way you hold it. Continue reading
