We all make silly drawings when we are bored. What type of doodles do you draw and do you know what they are supposed to mean? Do you prefer to doodle in pen, pencil, crayon, or does anything go as long as you can doodle?

If you look at the discussion further up I put a link to a site that explains exactly what each doodle is supposed to represent, may make a good read for a giggle? I doodle when I am waiting to cut in a meeting lol. I prefer to be in the Chair, I can't doodle, but I sure can cut the boring stuff lololol.

Well you must have some sort of shape to the doodle, even if it is a scribble lol. You seem to doodle a lot, so why not have a pad and instead of doodling write down ideas for mylot discussions? You can still doodle around them for fun, but when you get back from boring old work you can put up some interesting discussions for the rest of us, that would be great!

I doodle animals and buildings and patterns, it depends on my mood. I'm very good at it, I used to do a lot of art but my boys won;t let me now, they rip it up and throw it around so I give in. I spend a lot of time desinging the airbrushing for my campervan, if I ever get it, the my boys colour it in and it goes in the bin because it gets ripped.

Well, you are a multi talented doodler then! That is apparently unusual, because according to research people who absent mindedly doodle tend to stick to one type of pattern. Trust you to break the mold lol. However, I must encourage you with your art. You will just have to keep the artwork up there with the ornaments, above the doors. If you keep going with the art and sell some you could put it into a fund for the campervan, airbrush that, show the picture around and other people might ask you to do theirs as well. Your boys can't rip up a camper van, can they? Although, with children, you should never underestimate them . . .

Of course I'm unusual, thought you guessed taht by now, lol. That's a very good idea but I sort of think my art is personnal as I don't think anyone would buy it, lol - maybe for a comedy charity, lol. Perhaps I could get away with saying I was very ill when I did it? I was hoping to get a real airbrusher to do my magical campervan, I'm writing stories about her adventures, if I can get published I will hopefully have the cash to buy her. You should never underestimate my children . . .

I tend to doodle in circles. It usually starts out as a way to get the ink going into my pen - so yeah, I doodle in pen. I didn't know they were supposed to mean something.

shelagh77---I bookmarked the site you have hear. I get so engrossed on this site and lose track of time. I am a doodler when I am on the phone so it would be interesting what they make out of the shapes I doodle. Thank you for posting that site.

I am very busy too, but I doodle when I am waiting to see the doc or otherwise bored. Usually they end up being flowers, even if I didn't set out to do flowers. They are not works of art though, quite a mess really lol.

I usually doodle hearts only because thats the best thing I can doodle. I prefer to use pen because it glides and makes my drawing look better.

Ah, that is very cute! Do you draw enormous hearts or lots of tiny ones, and are they very elaborate or heart outlines?
