Doodle-y Do, Something to Do

triangle doodles
For fun I’ve been taking Lisa Congdon‘s line drawing class over at Creative Bug. I didn’t expect the  meditative benefit of drawing random lines and shapes. My lunchtime doodles are so relaxing.

As always, when I find one form of art I love, I go down a rabbit hole and can spend days looking for other artists and reading all about them.

Here are a couple that stand out:

Julia Rothman : She does quite a bit of editorial work, and book illustration. And I adore the pattern for linens she created!

Clever, clever Wendy MacNaughton collaborated on a scratch and sniff wine book! The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert: Take a Whiff of That

She often shows her sketch book on her blog, and is also working on a “Lost Cat” project.

Both Lisa and Wendy are local to me, so I’ll have to keep an eye out for “open studio” possibilities.
