I’m still working on the format of these doodles, they definitely reflect my inability to draw a straight line…even with a ruler.
As a child I loved drawing, but I have the misfortune (?) of being related to, and acquainted with, proper artists. (You know, the sort that can capture what they see with a few strokes of a pencil. Or create a masterpiece with a biro) It never put me off drawing as such, it’s just that art was their thing, not mine. Over the years I think I forgot that it was ok to do things just because you liked doing them.
Anyway, the point is that there doesn’t have to be a point, I post the odd cartoon but I have pages of them that don’t ever need to see the light of day. I have recaptured that child-like enjoyment of sitting down with a pen and some paper and just drawing. I’d like to be better at it, I’ve improved since I first found myself doodling again, but really I could draw stick people and still get pleasure from it. And I suppose that’s what it’s all about.
