I was wondering the other day whether the Doodle might be a dying phenomenon, pushed out by the widespread use of computers instead of traditional paper. Those of us with limited (non-existent)artistic skills, could always manage a few lines and indecipherable Doodle scrawl to while away time during a tedious class.
But perhaps my pessimism for the future of the Doodle was mis-placed. A current internet sensation is the Doodling of American student, Jody Steel. Jody, a film production student, has her own special way of Doodling however….on her leg.
Recognising Jody’s artistic skills, her lecturer commissioned her to illustrate a book he was editing, and Jody has set up her own website to showcase her work.
With job offers flooding in, her future seems rosey, but I do wonder if with all the time she spends on her Doodles, whether she knows much about film production!!
