Sometimes it is nice to take a break from painting and just draw without any plan in mind. The drawing above is done in my sketchbook with ball point pens, gel pens and highlighters. And it started off as a weird doodle. I usually draw like this when I am sick or unable to sleep, and while watching TV. They are a wonderful distraction from everything around me.
I had so much fun doing the hair in the above drawing and that led to the doodle below. I think I got a bit carried away, but it was so much fun. This one was done with my sharpies.
Drawing doodles is almost like a form of meditation, I find that I get ideas for other drawings and paintings while doing these doodles.
