This is a collage built from doodles committed during the process of creating an illustration for the ol' newspaper job. These particular doodles were not used.
Years ago I made a habit of putting my discarded art to use in my journal. Doodles would be xeroxed, blown up, pasted down and drawn on once again. It was a great creative exercise involving drawing, designing, painting and sometimes writing. I miss the pleasures of drawing, designing and writing for myself.
This is a timid step towards trying to re-invigorate the artist by creating art in ways that I find enjoyable.
Well, heck. Now that I think about it, that's why I started working on a blog. So, this is me reminding myself why I even bother with all this nonsense.
