I’m an impulsive doodler.
It’s an addiction; an obsession.
I used to finish writing my exams early and draw mindlessly on my question paper to forget the, trauma I’d just been through.
You can’t leave a pen and paper by my side and expect it to stay that way.
As is the case with chocolate.
Are you a doodler, too? If so, do you feel like it helps with concentration? I feel that when my hand is busy, my mind is better focused.
Whether during classes, workshops, even when listening to lectures online, I become a better listener while I let myself go with a pen on paper.
If I don’t draw and I’m expected to listen to boring people my mind jumps between topics like ‘ How to recycle better’ and ‘ Quoting quotes from FRIENDS’.
I’m a self- taught henna artist, and most of my doodles are henna inspired. Here’s some work I did during the teaching workshops I attended when I took up a teaching job back in 2013-2014.
One of my ( far into the future) business ‘goals’is to own a line of ‘henna-fied’ crafts and canvases- an extention of my love for henna, doodling, and wall art.
When God Wills 🙂
