Desktop Doodles

A scrap of paper that sits on my desk for any length of time usually ends up filled with this sort of stuff. My hand is continually seeking out blank spaces to release the creative subconcious—or something.

    I love The Doodle As Art Form. Seriously, something about seeing funky little faces next to a jotted address or “Take advantage of available rebates” is cooler than funky little faces by themselves. They inform each other somehow. If I’d gone to art school, maybe I’d know why.

    Well, I don’t think there is an academic rule of doodling (thank god!). It’s not something that really gets discussed in art school (I don’t think), but it definitely can be the source of much inspiration. It really does seem to come from the subconcious and is closely tied to neural/muscular connections between hand and brain—the hand drawing fun lines, basically. I think because of that, you keep a lot of other junk out of the way, and real imagination is able to come through. The relationships between doodles on a page is largely accidental, but maybe there’s an organized chaos there, and also by virtue of trying to make use of available space you get sort of compositional relationships between shapes… and stuff.

    phew!

    I have no idea what the hell I’m talking about. :D
