Doodling Part One
The article, I Draw Pictures All Day, from Smashing Magazine on doodling that includes not only a solid understanding of something I would bet all of us have done at some point in life...DOODLING! The article shows many valid arguments for the benefits of doodling. I plan on incorporating more doodling in my life as I’m convinced now that it is a way of connecting and visualizing important statements, ideas, solving problems, processing information, etc., and not a means of escaping, evading, or being disrespectful to a speaker. Not only has this article provided a solid case for the benefits of doodling but it also presents definitions of the word, “doodle,” over the past four centuries. Below is a very entertaining and enlightening TED talk (http://www.ted.com/talks) by Sunni Brown titled, “Doodlers unite!” that is referenced in the article. It is well worth the 6 minutes or so to watch.
