Experimenting Again

I guess I shouldn't use the "again" because I'm always trying something different.

I bought some new pens to try doodling with.  I was using a bolder tip but went to a double end pen with fine and chisel.  Here's the results of the finer tip.  I kinda like the change.  A little more delicate, seems to scream swirls and flourishes.   I'm on my fourth sketchbook of doodles.  I've become a little obsessive lately.  Anytime I have a few minutes, or in front of the TV or take a break, whenever I can't get in my studio, I'm doodling.  It's great therapy and addresses the need to be creative anytime, anywhere.  I carry a sketchbook in my car and have another by my chair at home.

Maybe I should put some on coffee mugs, what do you think?

There are many ways to be free. One of them is to transcend reality 
by imagination, as I try to do. 

Thanks for visiting, have a good week.  Find time (make time), to be creative.

I love your enthusiasm and dedication to doodle art. Glad you are enjoying the new pens. It makes me want to carry a book and start doing doodles! Happy PPF!

Doodling is fun .... And this kind of doodling is much more than a "doodle" .... Yes! Make something with it!!

Amelia said...

i love the notion of being 'free' through imagination. That's why art keeps me sane I think :)

I love your doodling - so funny as it's something we look at the course I run and people have been discussing what pens each of us uses!

I whole-heartedly agree with the concept of transcending reality with your imaginative artwork! I love the doodles, but the word doodle doesn't do them justice, they are pure artistry!

Hi Cynthia! I love your doodles! It looks like a work of art to me! Putting it on a coffee cup or anything else for that matter would look great. I like how it has a feminine feel to it. You are so dedicated to your sketchbooks, I envy you for that. Love your ending... Make time to be creative... I am taking that one to heart!

Yes, to the mug idea!

Doodles are so much fun and yours are always good.

You asked about the faces I draw - no, I don't always start my faces the same but I'm having fun with the phone book technique.

Doodling is fantastic. Disengage the picky part of the brain and let the creativity flow with no restrictions.

I was The Doodle Queen in High School. All my textbooks bear testament....

Love to see more,
