I think what I enjoy about doodling is that it is sort of purposeless. In fact, whenvever I wake up and start thinking that I should add something, I inevitably realize it was better left alone. I was a little worried that posting my doodles would cause me to think about them too much. But so far I haven't noticed that happening.
I've been noodling with this idea for a doodling blog. Every day I cover the pages of my notepads with doodle, at my desk, in meetings, on calls with clients. I try not to doodle during in-person client meetings. Even though it doesn't mean I'm not listening. I read that the lawyer Joseph Flom, of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, was a compulsive doodler, as was Malcom X.
Most of my doodles end up in the trash. I save some of the ones I like and they end up in various stacks in my office. So I decided to create a place where I can post them. Welcome to DoodleMob - my doodle blog. Enjoy!
