“Doodling is the brooding of the hand.”
I can’t stop drawing doodles on leaves. Maybe it’s the impermanence of the media that allows the fear of mistakes to shrink. Or it could be when I’m overthinking things, the temporary focus on guiding the pen over the delicate surface of a leaf, resets my mind.
I don’t know for sure. What I do know is it’s fun and therapeutic. Get yourself some Gelly Roll pens and give it a try. Metallic ones are amazing and moderately priced and the leaves are free.
