There's a Forklift in My Pencil Case

There's a Forklift in My Pencil Case | Doodlers Anonymous

Sometimes I worry that my doodlings might be getting a bit claustrophobic in that A5 notebook of mine. Would they be happier with a bit more space to play around in? Maybe some fresh air and a more interesting view than the last page's bum?

I'm keen to take notes from Luke Ramsey and Josh Holinaty - these boys know how to go BIG! For this mural in Canada, their doodling space was so huge they needed a forklift to reach the top!

It's probably best that I don't let the doodlings in my A5 notebook catch wind of this. They'd be so jealous. They might go on strike until I gave them more space to play around in. I guess I'll have to bust out the A3 butchers paper tonight, that'll keep them happy! For now.

We all enjoy a bit of a doodle! That's why we're here. Or maybe you got lost and were searching for a whole other kind of doodle... uh oh. Anyway, hello! My name's Lisa. I'm author of The Scribble Diary, a doodling book to inspire self-reflection. Also my new book is ME, YOU, US to fill out with your friends! Come find me on instagram @scribblediary


  1. really good job

  2. hey check out this REALLY FUNNY VIDEO!

  3. These pictures are amazing. "their doodling space was so huge they needed a forklift to reach the top!" I dont know how people draw such big pictures but so close to the wall, how they get all the proportions right from so close..very talented.

  4. I love it, want to do something huge somewhere too.. any offers?

  5. Lisa, just stumbled across this post & want to clarify that the \"Transition\" Mural is actually a project by the Edmonton Small Press Association (ESPA), a registered non-profit/activist-arts org. I\'m the Project Mgr that worked on it (unpaid) for over 4 yrs, when all\'s said & done. \r\n\r\nLuke & Josh (introduced & commissioned by ESPA) designed the artwork & executed the line-work, but there were actually 12 other artists who did most of the prep, base-painting & sealing/weather-proofing. \r\n\r\nWe\'d just like to see ESPA & the other artists also receive credit for their work on it, & would appreciate you updating the above post to reflect that ESPA is the actual Producer. (Incidentally, ESPA has since received a 2011 \"Award of Excellence\" by the Edmonton Urban Design Awards & a Medal in the 2012 Nat\'l Urban Design Awards [Royal Architectural Institute of Canada] for producing the Mural.) Thanks. :)
