When I was first asked to contribute to DA this month it really got me thinking about what it meant to doodle. The first thing that springs to mind for me is always the random scribbles I do while I'm talking on the phone. But there are so many different ways (and materials you can use) to doodle.
I feel like I''m slightly underselling the work shown here by calling it a doodle. But doodles can also be as simple, or as intricate as you want them to be.
All of this work is by the amazing Jared Andrew Schorr, who also happens to be a really nice guy. If Jared had created all of this work with pens or paints I'd still love it. But there's something about the fact that this is all made with cut up bits of paper that takes it to another level. I'm always amazed by the amount of detail Jared manages to cram into his work. Especially when you see how TINY some of this work is. He must have the steadiest hands and highest level of patience in the whole world.
The picture at top is the "lobby" of Jared's portfolio website. You should head over there and have a click around, and you can see a lot more of Jared's work on his Flickr photostream. There's plenty of photos on there that show you how big these pieces actually are.
I must have clicked "favorite" on 99% of his photos!
