No Time to Doodle
There was an era in my life when I actually had time during the work day to cover my desk blotter with doodles. I'd start with a fresh green or brown blotter, vowing to keep it pristine and businesslike, but inevitably after a day or two, an eyeball or a star or a heart would appear. After that...well, I knew it was a lost cause. Whenever I had some down time, or whenever I needed a break, I'd add to the picture. Eventually the entire blotter would be covered with faces and lines and comets and creatures, all done in micro pens, pencil and white-out. The picture above contains pieces of two blotter doodles from several years ago. These days...well, I don't have a blotter and I just don't have time to doodle at work.
