Exploring Doodling as an art form can be a fun and simplistic way to come up with new ideas and patters, characters and designs. This art form requires limited materials and is suitable for everyone to have a go at! All you need is some paper and a pen.
You can doodle without any prior planning and without great expectations on the results. To get started you can either put pen to paper and see what happens naturally, or you can start by thinking about a theme or topic, such as nature, or food.
Doodling is at its best when completed somewhat absent minded, so try doodling while on the phone, watching tv or having a chat.
Doodling can help you tackle boredom in a playful and creative way and can have the added benefit. of helping you concentrate.
