Doodle for Doodle’s Sake

Did you know that the UK’s Creative Industries are now worth £84.1 billion per year to the UK economy?

Yeah, me neither.

Anyhow, the thing about doodling is that the only purpose is to play with lines, shapes and colours.

For me, there is nothing academic about it, it will not be mass produced or sold, it will not be used for self-promotion, though it could be used to promote doodling. And in this world where global capitalism is the patriarchal king, I find this a revolutionary practice. Plus, it eases my anxiety.

Even if some of these doodles could be used to decorate a product, I won’t do so.

Here are some of my favourites from this year.
