Why do you doodle?
Why wouldn’t I doodle? I’m not sure I’d know how to stop doodling if I wanted to—and I definitely don’t. Doodling is fun. When I was a kid my doodles helped fill the hole in my self-confidence which was a result of not knowing how to throw or catch. Getting picked last in gym class can be (almost) made up for when someone thinks you’re drawings are super cool.
Milton Glaser said “drawing is how I think.” That resonates with me. Doodling helps me relax, doodling helps me make sense of things, doodling made middle school less miserable, and doodling transformed my career.
