roles: doodler, creator... I suppose???
I doodle everything all of the time. On the silly cool side, doodles look neat. I use doodling functionally; I organize thoughts, brainstorming, visualize ideas, and create with doodles. Almost everything on this website is a doodle, except for the white flowers, I didn't do those. Here's a bunch of my doodles, because I think it's my superpower and you might as well know it now:)
this is a character backstory I doodled for a dnd5e character I created.
how my notes look generally:)
(this is from a fantastic speaker series I attended over zoom near the beginning of the pandemic)
a lot of my doodles do serve so sort of purpose! brainstorming or eventual designs, like here!
I love and hate doodling on napkins and most of my ideas for designs are sourced from my doodles. I would say that doodles are important but don't necessarily identify me as a graphic designer per se. Maybe one day though!
