I've been doodling a lot lately in the evenings. It's so easy to grab a Sharpie and a sketchbook and go to town.
I've been looking into Alisa Burke's sketchbook for inspiration and even bought some watercolors to play with.
I used to practice my handwriting obsessively in high school. My mother used to say that my class notes looked better than papers she used to hand in when she was in school. Now I type way more than I write and I don't care for my handwriting much anymore.
I read somewhere that doodling helps you pay attention when people are speaking. I hope that's true because I am finding myself doodling in meetings lately.
I forgot how much I used to enjoy just doodling for no reason. Pick up a pen, grab some paper, and give it a try...it's a great way to spend an hour...
