I was doodling while pretending to watch ALIAS on Netflix, and I made this.
Note: ALIAS is kind of hard to follow if you’re not actually watching the screen. It looks like this.
art therapy, creativity, doodles, Judy Clement Wall, play, sharpies
Love it! Numbers 4 and 6 are my favorites.
I have never tried wearing a tinfoil hat. (Not yet anyway.) I may have fought the inner critic with a wrapping-paper-roll sword on occasion.
*fetches wrapping paper roll from recycle can*
Does having tin-foil colored hair count?? :D
Ha! If it does, that will be the upside to growing grey!
I love your fish and I love all the wise steps. Off I go to doodle away! LOL!
Doodlers unite! <3
How true! No. 8 I am feeling especially drawn towards right now!
And I wish my creative process worked like this, too. Not being able to rest properly and so much socializing (where I count work as well, because it’s loud and involves way too many people for my introverted taste!) I am feeling drained rather than creative…
Oh, Estrealla, I totally understand about the over-socializing. You definitely need some downtime between events to reconnect to your core and recharge. Here’s hoping you find some of that soon. xox
I’m working on it. Meanwhile, have a read over at my blog if you want to – I talk about some things that make up for my introverted self’s survival guide to a wedding :)
PS: because I’m not-so-secretly hoping you can provide more tips ;)
Ha! Cute post, but you’re definitely asking the wrong person for tips. Your list of 9 tips has 8 more things than I’d have thought of! I just bring Chad. He’s good in crowds. ;)
You’re too cute!
Is Chad free in August? I might just have to borrow him if I have to attend that other wedding as well… ;)
Oh, this is sacred goodness. Damn, I love you – your wisdom, your kick ass fish.
It’s not every day I get a compliment that includes both the phrases “sacred goodness” and “kick ass fish.” Love you madly, Julia!
Even reading about YOUR doodling feels like play to me! *smile* And I love your epigrammatic lists! ~lucy
Ha! The night I doodled the first version of this post was hilarious. Chad was cooking and I was doodling and – holy cow! – ALIAS is not a show you can watch without watching. Some are. Some shows you can listen to all the talking and get the gist of things. But large swaths of ALIAS are action music, and I’d look up after about 5 minutes of that and realize I had no idea who any of the people on screen were.
I love the word epigrammatic to describe my lists. When I grow up, I want you to be my publicist. xo
Your doodles bring a smile to my face – they are so fun and at the same time, they offer up words of wisdom that bring a smile to my soul! (((hugs)))
And this comment brought a smile to mine. *bear hugs you back with my super-j strength*
My notebooks’ margins are filled with doodles! I doodle my name or my characters’ names in different types of lettering styles, flowers, odd shapes and lines, goofy smiley faces. Doodling helps me plan my novels and stories. Coloring with crayons is a great help, too!
Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines
I bet doodling the odd shapes and lines and colors actually helps you get to know your characters better. I’m amazed at the insights I get while doodling. I think there’s something physiological happening – like using the doodle part of the brain frees up the writing part to wander about, unfettered.
This bit of truthiness has been brought to you by j-science!
Your doodles make me happy :)
Course I think it’s like Julia said–it is all art in disguise. You have a special talent for sharing love in pictures.
Also I remember watching Alias a long time ago but it ended up getting too complicated for me lol.
The first season was probably the best one though.
I’ve heard that about the first season. At the rate we’re going, we will be on the first season for a long while. We’re not very good at watching TV around here. (Obviously.) :)
Are you kidding? We don’t even have cable haha
Neither do we. Hence, Netflix. (Which is why I don’t see anything when it’s new.
Just perfect! You should sell this one as a poster in your Etsy shop!
That could happen. Prints are coming SOON!
LOVE this!! And so true about Alias. Same for Revenge which got kind of Alias-esque this season. I can’t watch a show that forces me NOT to multi-task. Just don’t have time for that!
EXACTLY! Unless it’s a movie, I never just sit and watch anything. With Alias, I’ll be drawing or whatever and realize there’s been nothing but (exciting, death-defying) music for 10 minutes. No dialogue so I have no idea what’s going on. I may not make it through Season 1.
My mission: make art, do work, and engage in shenanigans that inspire fearless love, soulful evolution, and wild creativity as a way of life.
And if, in the process, epic quantities of cheesecake are consumed, all the better! For my illustrated story, click here.
