    It does have some legibility issues but I think it is fun.
    The egg shape isn't readily apparent, and the feather also took a bit for me to recognize.

    It kinda looks like a band logo--which...

    When I was in high school I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer, but didn't really have any guidance as far as what to take to prepare for college. So I took as many art classes as I could and put...

  • Post your doodles

    A while back there was a brief conversation on all of us who doodle at work. (The sketching kind of doodles I mean heh heh).

    At my work I am on and off the phone, while on the phone I sketch randomly on a piece of paper I keep at my desk (else all my client paper work/orders would be a mess with doodling.)

    This was todays..... would like to see other peeps doodles so post away. Of course these are by far no works of art but fun to look at later. Thing is I throw most of it out.

        Here's one of mine, rescued from the recycle bin just for this post.

          I don't really get to doodle... My notepad is full of notes to myself about certain dimensions, lists of fonts I'm considering for a project, CMYK values, reminders to email so-n-so. All written with my left hand even though I'm right handed (it's just easier when the right hand is occupied by the mouse). I've made myself ambidextrous.

            This thread made me think back to my doodles from when I was heavily pregnant and couldn't sleep at night. i used to waste time blind contour drawing at stupid O'Clock in the morning. Any of you lot do those? I'm guessing it's something design students do in university maybe as observation practise, but I did physics in uni, not design though, so i don't really know.

            Is anyone interested in starting a blind contour thread somewhere on the board? Here are a couple of cool ones i found online for anyone who wasn't sure what blind contour drawling was. Not sure where all my ones ended up. In the recycling probably!

              oh no no...I said above that those two aren't my doing. I just found them online as great examples of blind contour drawing. Mine drawings got chucked out with the recycling. I'm sure I'll do some more soon to post though.

                while its technically not a doodle, i did do some graffiti here at work today....

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

                    Well done Frag!!

                    I like it. It's funny and sad all at the same time, It makes me think even though I don't want to. I want to look away, but I can't...... OMG. I went too far over the top. I can see Everest.

                      Here's what a prepresser gets to doodle. Not really as fun as the others though.

                        Actually those are lists of fonts I need to pull from the library, or get from the
                        client. Know that no matter how much is said about over use and cliché, people
                        still go back to their Woobies. A shame really. It's not like there's a shortage
                        of fonts. Even just the OS's base set has some variety on a PC.

                          Doubting_Thomas, I'll have to post some of my typical scratches, because they look frighteningly much like yours.
