Happy New Year! Have you noticed any thoughts of possible resolutions drifting through your mind these days? Personally, I dislike resolutions … they seem to come pre-packaged with the cynical threat of failure. I prefer the anticipation of embracing new ideas, trying new things, and nurturing new habits. These seem somehow friendlier and more approachable. And so, may I humbly submit for your consideration this friendly and (perhaps) new habit for 2014: Found-Object Doodling!
I saw this, a couple of days ago, on the inkygirl blog by children’s book writer & illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi, and I wanted to share it with you:
Ah! Inspiring in the best sense of the word, because this is something everyone can do! Click on the photo above, or the article link, to read (and see) more. Doodling will warm-up your creative muscles, and there’s no pressure to “make it perfect”. It’ll bring a smile to your face and to those around you. It contributes more art to the world and reminds us that art is all around us. And all it takes to get started is a Sharpie in your pocket.
