A Doodle a Day: Part VI

Sometimes writing in my journal feels too much like work, so I turn to my storyboard Moleskine and doodle instead – it’s never difficult to fill a simple little rectangle with something that comes to mind. I never try to read too much into what comes out on the page and you shouldn’t either. I have to admit that some of  this latest batch is influenced by Graham McCallum’s book “400 Art Deco Motifs“, which is a recent source of inspiration.

Research tells us that “doodling improves concentration” so we should all do more of it.

The world is not enough.

Fife and Drum

  1. I can see why Barb Lane likes your blog so much. She, too, is an incessant doodler and is one of the most artistic people I know.

  4. Lovely.

    I especially like the fife and drum one.

    • Hm, thanks, yes. When I was kid I used to draw things I really wanted to do: play Pete Seeger’s banjo, participate in a cavalry charge, create large explosions, fly a helicopter.

      It felt as if drawing those things brought me a bit closer to experiencing them. Lately I have found an urge to do this again.

      This doodle is actually a daydream of mine … that’s me on the fife (which I can’t really play very well at all) and one of my friends on the drum and we are busking by a lamp post on a bridge in my home town. Maybe we’ll actually get to do it one day.
