A family friendly site, we are about having fun and enjoying the freedom to express our creativity. Within you'll find a variety of doodles and art by artists using various mediums, including pen & ink, acrylic, watercolor, and oil. Although this is a doodle site, all forms of art are welcome. We have nothing to sell or promote and no plans to do so in the future.
This is a place for a growing community of ordinary people to share their talents and inspiration with each other, as well as family and friends around the world. No competition allowed. Just the delight of seeing and appreciating what others are creating as well as sharing our own artistic discoveries.
In the spring of 2005, a spiritual friend encouraged me to find a hobby where I could get lost in time. Painting, writing, and drawing were a few options she suggested, and through experimentation I discovered the fun of drawing in pen and ink on Bristol paper. By just playing around without worrying about the end product, I found incredible freedom and gained greater self confidence. In fact, it's so much fun that I don't mind the work involved. My art became a form of meditation that I called doodling because up to that point I hadn't seen anything like mine. It was two years before I stumbled upon other people like me.
What a surprise when I discovered a whole doodling sub-culture. The internet abounds with us crazy artists and their creativity fed mine. Then a few years ago I discovered the Zentangle explosion and have purchased all of their books. They also use drawing as a form of meditation and have developed tons of designs to use within their tangles. I've enjoyed incorporating some of their pretty designs within my own work and appreciate how they have brought this form of drawing to the masses. Bless them! For more terrific doodling sites, check the links page and you'll see what I mean. Each doodler has their own style and something different to offer. Some doodles even qualify as a form of abstract or fine art.
You are invited to join us and share your work. Artists retain full rights and anything shared with us is for just that purpose. Even if you think you don't have a creative bone in your body, you do. If you can write your name you can draw. Use these designs to get you started and play around. Fancy supplies are unnecessary. A piece of paper, a napkin, or paper bag and something to make marks will do. And before you go, please sign our guestbook.
