Sketchbook pages #3 … mindlessly doodling is a brain workout!

see you next time...A few more pages from my sketchbook…

The doodles materialize most evenings as I pretend to watch tv or while listening to music. I’m so used to it that I feel something is missing if I don’t have a pen in my hand.
Drawing takes my mind off my chronic pain by giving my brain a workout, even though I think I’m “mindlessly” doodling!

I hope you get a moment of mindlessness as you browse through these sketchbook pages…

These drawings are in a Moleskine sketchbook measuring 5.25′ x 8.25″ (13.3 cm x 21 cm).
I use a variety of black pens including Uniball Signo, Sakura Color’s Micron series, and Pilot V Razor Points in varying point thicknesses… lately I’m on a Micron kick.


Do you sketch, doodle, paint, collage, or draw?

  1. Deb, Your doodles are first rate! The complexity and symmetry is amazing. After I viewed your previous doodles a while back, I found some very similar multi-sized art projects at Walmart for kids. They have black felt borders to help the young ones stay in the lines and use a kind of paint by numbers approach. I got about thirty of these for my granddaughter and we spend hours together painting them with colored markers. Your inspiration has given a seven year old girl a love of art. We are both hooked on your unique style and it’s really fun to try it ourselves. Thanks Deb!!
