If you scan my Moleskine Journal you’ll see more than words; you’ll see scribbles, shapes, shadows, cross-hatch, figures in perspective (an attempt, anyway). Yes, I’m a doodler!
It’s amazing what happens when you face a blank page and doodle while discussing the next great idea or the meaning of life! I think it’s safe to say that some of the world’s greatest ideas were hatched this way – especially on bar napkins.
People even report that doodling is the perfect way to eliminate stress. They can feel their negative emotions drain from their body in the form of ink or graphite and flow on to paper. You can even use a rainbow of crayons or paints to color the doodles after you have done them. Oh, and remember that magical aroma of hope of a new box of crayons?
