It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Friday Fun post, so here we go. The image above is from my little cousin’s sketchbook that I took around WWChicago with me. He just turned 10 last week and he’s into comics in a big way, so of course I have to stoke the flames a bit. This is my contribution to his sketchbook: a Wolverine and Rogue in their X3 movie outfits.
Next up, I was in a meeting about pet supplies and I just drew my dogs in pen. I have a weird thing about doodling in meetings, or in class when I was a student. They are my versions of notes. I can look at the doodle/sketch and remember everything we discussed. I didn’t think anything of it except I found out my brother and father do the same thing in essence: they both describe taking a “snapshot” of a page in their head which they can recall in a test later. I do that too, to some extent, but not as much as the doodling. I wonder if anyone else out there does that? I know I pissed many of my classmates off (especially in Art History) because I didn’t seem to or need to study; I’d just flip through my sketchbook or look at a slide and remember what we talked about that day.
Since joining the work force, I don’t doodle as much because well, they kind of frown on that.
