Introducing Yakadoodle-a-day

I have doodled almost every day of my life for as long as I can remember. I do it because I love it. Drawing is a part of me and when I go too long without drawing I tend to get grumpy. In the past these sketches have just gone into a portfolio never to be seen again. I created this daily blog as a way to document and share this aspect of myself as an artist. 

I don’t know that I would call these works drawings, because they aren’t particularly deliberate; they are fast and dirty, and like a lot of fast and dirty things they are fun.  I’m also not sure that I would call them doodles because they require a bit of time and focus. They are Yakadoodles, simply a celebration of the mark and a fascination with the repetitive, and the exploration of what happens when the two meet. I hope you enjoy them!
