Recently between painting and sketch work I have been doodling.
Fiercely undiciplined I know, but some of the best art ideas I have
had, arrived through the aimless wanderings of a pen.
Normally at the end of the day I will collect these scraps, photograph
them and email them to my tablet.Then in the evenings when I sit and
watch the TV or listen to music I will color them up using a free graphics app.
Here are a couple of doodles below, scribbled out and colored up digitally.
The themes of most of my scribbles are sci-fi and I end up stockpiling all of
these for possible use later. I like very much working in this way as images
can be scribbled up in minutes and colored as fast and they also retain that hand
drawn look. Almost all of the images end up becoming just storage but the hope is
that eventually some may become fully fledged illustrations and it is always useful to
know that there is plenty work ready if needed but for now of course they are only doodles :)
