Doodled Postcard

Doodling patterns is just so darn relaxing.  Here is another of my recently doodled postcards.  Indian ink pens on 6" x 4" card stock.  Sent to one of my "art buddies".

Junk Mail Journal : free Dream

I ran across the little junk mail journal that I made years ago.  Here is one of the crazy collage pages found inside.  Just magazine and catalog bits glued to a piece of junk mail, with a bit of doodles thrown in for good measure.

I made the little junk journal by taking the junk mail postcards that had accumulated near my computer, trimming them all to 4" x 6" or so, and spiral binding them into a book.  Then I just started pasting random bits inside to decorate the pages.

Another Valentine Postcard

I am making Valentine post cards to trade with friends.  Here is my second: more doodled hearts.

This is how it looked before I used black pens to doodle over top of the color. 

I started with just random colors in loose doodles to fill the 4" x 6" card.

Then I came back with black ink pens and started to fill in the shapes with random doodles.


Hopefully this will add a bit of brightness to someone's day!

Valentine Post Cards

I am making Valentine post cards to trade with friends.  Here is my first: a fabulous doodled heart. 

I really enjoy doodling random patterns.  I find it a great way to relax my brain.

This post card was drawn with Faber Castell Indian ink pens. 

I started with a variety of colored brush tip pens and made loose doodles to fill up the 4" x 6" card.  I didn't plan, I just doodled.

Then I came back with black ink pens and started to fill in the shapes with random doodles.

I finished with an opaque silver metallic Sharpie (love it!) to add a little "pop" to the border around the heart and added dots in the thick lined heart border.

Fun and Easy!

the Quintessential Quirky Compendium of Cats

Many moons ago I submitted this drawing for a Doodlers Anonymous coloring book open call.

It was initially accepted for "Coloring Book 2", but then all the cat related pieces got bumped for inclusion into an upcoming "special edition".

I am happy to report that the special edition is now available, and I have a plum spot - right in the center of the book!
