Doodlers Doodling

I am a doodler. Always have been. It made me a little self-conscious in school, like my teachers would think I wasn't paying attention-- but I WAS. I think I pay more attention when my hands have something to do! Imagine my relief when I learned that our President Elect Barack Obama is ALSO a doodler!



And then the loss of that relief when I saw that Sarah Palin is too:


(she's more of a word/number doodler, though, so that doesn't really count, right??)


I still feel like people think I'm daydreaming when I doodle away during meetings, but if anything it keeps me more in the present. My only problem is occasionally not wanting to turn the page in our progress reports when I'm in the midst of a nice sketch.


(yes, that's an email from THE Surly Temple, of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby! Emailing ME! ... and a bunch of other girls)


Which probably led to this doodle. Side bar: I LOVE ROLLER DERBY PRACTICE. I've only been to 2 and am pretty convinced I won't make the team on Dec. 6th, but it is SO FUN. And for me, anyway, doing things outside of my "comfort zone" (literally- I've been in DIScomfort since the first practice), I get all fired up creatively. The day after the first practice was when I finally started in on that new dummy I've been thinking about for months now.


Didn't Barack Obama's sketch sell for like $2000 on ebay? FYI- in case you like what you see here...

what chance is there of Barack Obama keeping a blog of all his doodles? I'd love to see the ones he does at the UN or even from visitors to the White House!

It would be a winner, surely! And lovely pig, by the way!

He has a Flickr account & posts his video addresses on YouTube- I don't see why a blog can't be next!

Wow, who knew! That's so funny that Barack doodles...and it looks as if he's pretty talented too! I'm right with ya on the needing to doodle to stay focused -- I used to do the EXACT same thing at production meetings when I was working at HH. Too funny :)

Hi, Victoria! I got a chance to meet you (very briefly) at the Minnesota SCBWI conference. Everyone is still talking about how nice you were! I love your bride and groom birdies- congrats on your upcoming wedding! Your artwork is really lovely- Bea totally rocks the flock! Keep up the great work and thanks for making our conference so fabulous!

I know- is there anything Obama CAN'T do?!?

Nina, thank you for the cornucopia of compliments! I had a really great time at the MN conference, so thanks for being such a welcoming group...
