Scribbles!

They say that doodling is a good insight into one's thoughts. Interesting. Me, I find doodling inconsciously very hard to achieve. Even when I sketch drawings I take consciencious decisions during the process. Whereas one of my housemate's, who also draws, does the opposite: he starts with a line, a mark on the paper and will make a picture out of that. Simple. Me, I find I have to start with something solid in my head: A simple object or gesture that I can build on in a slightly more unconscious, flexible style. If I see it is changing from my original idea I will follow the path that unfolds, but my conscious is still conscious that my drawings should please others and I feel this inhibits my creativity. I'll get over it eventually. Art is like a form of meditation. Out of nothing comes something. But if you're thinking about something the train of thought can also be useful.
