Now for some- thing totally differ- ent...
This is a sketch that I've been playing around with while the wife and I have been watching the Olympic games.
Some of you, I think, would consider this an actual doodle. It started because I wanted to try out a new Sharpie pen that I picked up (which I like very much). Also, I was trying to imitate, just a bit, the style of Andrea Joseph - one of the few artist whose blog I visit regularly. I really like her work.
I began by drawing the stylized black heart in the middle. Then I remember that a friend had given me a set of Pilot colored pens for my birthday, and so I started adding stuff to the illustration. My colors were limited to the colors of the pens in that set, and my goal was really nothing more than trying to fill a piece of paper.
It is likely that you'll see this doodle again because I'll probably end up trying to fill in more of the empty spaces. You wouldn't mind a repeat - would you?
Now go pick up a pen and try some doodling yourself. Don't tell me that you can't do at least that. There's an artist within you - for some of you he's really deep down inside you, but he's there. So give it a try - and e-mail me a copy. I'm going to steal your work.
