Doodling - Sketching

I’ve always been a doodler, I sit many a night and take pencil to paper, doodling away and then after the paper is full I throw it into the bin.

When I was at school I loved art, I took art O-level and would have loved to go to art college but I was offered a full time job. These were so hard to get and I was afraid that I wouldn’t get a job that I took it, I’ve always regretted not going to art college.

I thought I’d share with you a couple of my doodles. I’m no Picasso so don’t expect much.

An eye, not perfect but hey, I enjoyed doing it.



And then a scribble of a man, I don’t know who he is but he must have been in my brain somewhere to get to this stage.


So what is your guilty pleasure to escape the daily thoughts? what is it that you do?

Wow Jak, I think your eye is beautiful. I am a wannabe doodler - I never do it because I don't have any confidence that I would be any good but I would absolutely love to. I loved the idea of Zentangling because I don't think you have to be so good at drawing as long as you get a basic shape to zentangle! You have inspired me.... I'm going to have a doodle - it can always go in the bin once the page is full!! :)

Love your eye Jak, I use to doodle all the time but I find I don't do it any more. I keep thinking I will start an art journal and message about with what is in my head, maybe you should do an art journal.

WAUW your eye and your man is awesome Jak, but ofcause it is, as you´re always sooo inspiring in everything you ever do, and I don´t think, there´s anything, you can´t do. I´ve always been dreaming about being good at drawing, but just never been at all, that´s for sure, so I stick to color everything, that everybody else has been drawing instead, and to create fun things out of all kinds of recycled materials, that everybody else would´ve tossed in the bin, so my big passion today is to find good use of anything that´s not in use anymore in my crafting.

I'm so pleased these haven't ended up in the bin ..... or have they? You've captured so much detail in that 'doodle' eye, so much so I don't think it ought to be called a doodle! xxx

I agree with all the other, that eye is fantastic Jak. The man looks a bit like he should be in a rock band playing a guitar, just has a rock star look about him.
