Art Journaling – Week 22 – Doodle


I brought my journal along to a conference last weekend and during the teaching time, I started to doodle.  Having no intention in mind, only making marks on the page as I listened to the speaker.

Reading many articles and hearing much teaching about how doodling and even simple scribbling helps improve comprehension and creative thinking.  While I was listening and doodling shapes started to form and words came to mind.   In the end, I have a visual representation of what I learned throughout the teaching, which helps it stick in my memory, and a list of words that spoke to me and were calling out for further pondering, not only about the teaching I received but also about the things that were already weighing on my heart.

I watched a Ted Talk about this very thing, Sunny Brown states that “doodling impacts the way we process information and our ability to solve problems.”

Give doodling a try the next time you are in a lecture, a business meeting, or class and see if there is a difference.

Suddenly this little orange guy pops up.  What could this mean?  Choose to rise up and be different from the crowd. Affogato, my new favourite, yummm What!!! Came home to Uni suntanning, topless!  And drinking margaritas!  I never seen this side of her, wow, I hope she smartens up before Daniela comes home.  We don't need this kind of bad influence here. Nite nite Uni, only 14 more sleeps. #Uni Dads keeping a close eye on Uni now, after that attempted escape. #Uni
