You can doodle, you really can. Well if I can learn do it, you certainly can.
In the You Can Doodle course you learn about the history of doodling, right back to the cave man days doodling has been a form of visual communication, a visual language. My cave man style doodle shows images from my life, who I am, what I love, where I live and what’s important to me.
Then you get to explore your childhood influences. I used to spend hours as a child scrawling circular squiggles all over a page and then colouring in the shapes in the gaps, like this:
Then even more hours doing the same thing on the computer in paint. Now I love creating little doodles like this:
I love books and have been reading everything I can get my hands on since I was a child so when I had to think back to a picture book whose illustrations I loved I choose The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
You also spend some time developing your own visual vocabulary and considering what to draw and your reasons for doodling. Some of my reasons for doodling are for fun and relaxation, as a part of my thinking and design process, brainstorming, making plans and for my to do list journal. I doodle for me and now I also doodle to share with you.
I hope you enjoy some of the doodles that I’ve shared with you today. Don’t forget to hop over to The Doodle Institute page and check out the You Can Doodle course.
