#Art – Absentminded Creations

Let your doodles be your inspiration.

When I was a kid in primary school you would get the ruler over your knuckles for being left handed. I was left handed. I was constantly drawing in the margin of my school books so lots of rapped knuckles! School wasn’t my finest hour but it didn’t stop my doodling. If anything I found solace there.

Don’t let your creations go to waste. Take your first step in turning doodles into artworks that you can proudly sell and display.

  • Collect your doodles in a scrapbook.
  • When you run out of ideas go through your doodle scrapbooks.
  • Don’t expect work you produce to be your usual style.

Works that emanate from my scrapbook doodles tend to have bold lines and a different feel from my other works. Almost comical. It was going down this pathway that I became known as the Coogee Picasso.

Here are some examples. Both these works have been exhibited with my sleeper selling on opening night.

  1. Interestingly the left side of the brain controls the right hand; while the right side of the brain controls the left hand.

    Being left or right handed shows which side of the brain is dominate in that individual.

    I once had a teacher who claimed that he was “Right Minded” because he was left handed.
