Doodle tools needed.
I’ve never been able to draw in a sketchbook, I just find it too confining for my creative tastes. I prefer drawing in notepads, the kind you can simply tear out a sheet guilt-free and tack to a wall or place inside a project folder etc. Because I use notepads I’m left with a thin cardboard backing once I draw through all the pages.
I’ve always thought it was a waste to just toss these cardboard sheets away so I started saving them. I wasn’t exactly sure what I’d end up doing with them but so far they’ve led to what I call cardboard doodles. It’s more like a creative exercise for me and a good excuse to draw. I also like the fact the cardboard isn’t being tossed in the trash and becomes fun art.
All you need to do you own cardboard doodle is shown in the photo above. And this post shows how I created my most recent cardboard doodle “Angelic Pooch.”
