Three Hundred and Thirty-Two!

Line work, like you see in the image below, is so relaxing for me. It is somewhat meditative to just get lost in the repetitive behavior. It is funny, I tend to draw things like this on the sides of note pages or while attending a meeting, it doesn’t distract me but almost relaxes and focuses my mind. I once heard that those who doodle while they listen to a lecture or meeting actually retain more information, I think it works for me otherwise I distract myself by looking out the window. Funny how a bird outside a window or an interesting cloud can completely take me away but a page full of doodles focuses my mind on what I am hearing. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Six!

When you start drawing buildings and allow your pen to just go this is sometimes the result. Initially starting with the clock tower the buildings began to take on influence from Indian Culture. I am probably watching too many shows on Indian food as it is a new obsession. The color is mental but that was due to an orange highlighter. I went a bit crazy with it and naturally as soon as the brush hit those areas the orange leached into whatever color I tried to put near if forcing the image to have an unintended warm glow. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Five!

The color in this seemed bright to me at first but the more I stare at it the more it seems to grow on me. I really think that the Snowmageddon we have all been experiencing has forced many of us into this mental frenzy of dreaming about spring. Whether it be the imagery or the colors I feel that my work has absolutely started to embody this. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Four!

Another doodle started at work and finished at home. These small-scale city/landscapes are great sanity tools. The small details and disorienting angles suck you in and help you clear your head of the small issues currently clogging up your mind. I really tried to make this image confusing once I brought it home, utilizing color and washes to make it a bit harder to decipher which part belongs to where. I enjoy the play on whether it’s an image of a large house or if it’s a city-scape made of multiple buildings. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Three!

Highlighting stuff is such a fascination. It probably falls more to the accent of neon color but either way I love it! This image is far from a finished piece but like I mentioned in the challenge revision, I do not have time to get caught up in one image. I like the combination of structural and abstract, in particular the hive-like shape. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Two!

Doodles that start at work are sometimes exactly what you need to get ideas flowing. They serve as a mindless drawing and once you tune in may develop into something more. I really enjoy the elements that make up this drawing. The combination of pen, highlighter and paint make for an interesting variation. The colors are of course somewhat limited to what was available but even that serves as a great learning point. Please let me know your thoughts. Enjoy and see you next time!
