Doodles on old pages…

I have another falling apart book that I’m using for my drawings and doodles now.    I like drawing with my non-dominant hand and switching over to my dominant hand for adding more details.  Mostly, I used a Sharpie fine point marker. I tried a Pilot G2 pen but it didn’t glide over the book paper very easily.  I had more success with a Hybrid Techinca by Pentel.  I plan to experiment with other markers and pens as I go along in this book.

    I love these. I like text emerging through drawings. You’ve inspired me to give it a go.

    Oh, I simply adore your doodles!! :]
    It is so wonderful to combine typography with illustrations.
    These two elements make such a balance, great harmony…

    You mean… you do some of this with your non-dominant hand? Okay. Stop it already. Now you are just showing off.
    Seriously, though, Mary… very, very cool!
