FRIDAY FIND: David Cohen’s Doodle-grams

Dreadful Bunnies © David S Cohen 2010

David S Cohen of Equation Arts is a Brand Therapist, an artist, and a doodler. His doodles make my heart all warm and fuzzy. He draws things he loves – bunnies and birdies and kitties and elephants. And now he is offering his doodles as doodle-grams. Send one to someone you love, just cuz. It will make them feel special. And their brains will turn to mush and their hearts will go all gooey too.

David has 5 galleries of doodles to choose from. I especially love his ghoulish bunnies above. Want to send a doodle-gram? Go here. Have fun deciding what to send. I know when David sent me a doodle-gram I felt really special. Do that for someone else. It’s one of those things they will remember for a long time. I betcha.

Authentic Doodling

Energetic Release © Sue O’Kieffe 2010

I woke up around 1 a.m. and couldn’t get back to sleep. I was running a lot of energy with heartburn to boot. The Tums helped the heartburn but did nothing for all my excess energy.  I was feeling a little excited with understanding … you know those a-ha moments filled with big grok-kiness? I wanted to celebrate, but 1 a.m. is not the time for party music. So instead I had a little party on the page.

I had already started this doodle. At 1 a.m. the internal censor is barely awake and I just let myself feel into the page and let my hand go where it wanted — freely and unencumbered. All of the gunky energy I had been holding onto drained into the earth. I put on a party hat and threw confetti everywhere.

And when I was done, I turned out the lights. I wish I could say I slept soundly. It still took some time to relax. But sleep, I eventually did; and this morning I still feel excited and proud that I took the time to record these moments of awareness. That’s what it’s all about for me most these days, acknowledging  moments of deep authenticity that occur at some deep core level.

I totally recommend this practice.

GIVE THAT GIRL A HAND

give her a hand – © sue okieffe 2008

a year ago i rose to leah piken kolidas challenge to create every day during the month of november and tried my hand at non digital art. after a year i’ve learned that doodling is relaxing and fun. it also improves my eye, helps me better understand design concepts, and all i have to do is put my sharpie on paper and let go. i’m hooked.

so when i gave my doodles their own blog and started to look around for others who meandered on paper, low and behold i  discovered  a whole new world of doodling fools giving credence to this so much fun art form. over at doodlage!, RaShell is showcasing doodlers from all over the world. woohoo, not only am i having fun but im fashionable as well. imagine that! be sure to check out her 150th post which inspired this, my 28th.

so ive circled round another year and committed to a month of creativity.  stay tuned for another fun filled month of doodling. while you’re at it, come visit me at my other blog and get an eyefull of my inspiring digital mandala art.
