When I was a kid, I would always get in trouble for doodling in my notebook while the teacher was talking. I still have the same "problem" to this day. It's generally seen as daydreaming or just straight up disrespectful. For me though, it helps me focus more on what is being said and keeps my mind from wandering off. That's why I can relate so well with illustrator/awesome person John Hendrix who spends his time in church doodling away. His artwork is so detailed, capturing the sermon through hand-drawn compositions of typography, narrative illustrations, and sharp perspectives. All of these spreads were done while sitting in the pew (except for the watercolors that he'd add once he got home). John showcases the entire "Drawings In Church" series on his website, telling us that for him "simultaneous drawing and listening transforms familiar language into something new: a feedback loop of symbols, theology and wonder." These are just a few of my hand-picked favorites (it was very difficult decision), so be sure to check out the full collection!
