The word doodle was coined in the early 17th century and originally described a fool or simpleton. The art of doodling relaxes the brain. Doodling helps a person think and is thought to improve memory significantly.
Most, if not all, inventions begin with the doodle. When you mindlessly illustrate during boardroom meetings or in the margins of books, your subconscious brain is relaxing and conjuring up all sorts of wonderful mischief and inventive mayhem.
Save those scribblings from listening to a speaker drone on and on about reports, statistics and projections, yawn. Give em a life to see what you comes about.
The art of doodling is as old as humankind. Doodles are commonly found in the margins of school notebooks drawn by bored, daydreaming students unmorivated, not interested in classroom subjects or discussions.
Squigglets are my own doodles that span a lifespan of drawing for no particular reason other than to avoid listening to a speaker drone on and on about reports, statistics and projections. Some doodles are pre-colored to use as clipart and such, and others printable for coloring. Give em a try and see what you can create.
