AI: Doodling in the Margins


That’s how it starts sometimes. You’re mindlessly making squiggles in the margins of a notebook while watching reruns of Seinfeld and all of a sudden, you have a Masterpiece (okay, maybe not a Masterpiece, but something resembling a carefully constructed artwork of some type?) That’s how I ended up with the above image. There was Seinfeld, my sketchbook, a flexible ruler and a Bic pen.

Do you doodle? What kind of things come out when you just let your pen loose in the margins? Have you ever had a doodle take on a life of its own and become a full blown artwork?

The ART Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Mad Art Lab community. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET.

  1. I draw a lot of eyes. And hands. It’s actually kind of a challenge to draw anything different.

    Sometimes I like to take out my notebooks from college and look at the doodles from the particularly boring classes. I make myself laugh a lot of the time.

  2. I doodle all the time.

    Depending on what you mean by “full-blown artwork” – I had a doodle grow into an art journal page yesterday. I was idly doodling, inspired by the Frida Kahlo photo I have on one of my desktop machines, and it got so detailed I ended up cutting it out and collaging it into a journal, and now I’m trying to figure out what’s next, now that I have the background and her on the pages.
