    Lately i've been seeing a lot of great doodles, and after all doodles are as some may say our inner most creative thoughts coming to life. I've also seen a few illustrators doing a "doodle a day", so I thought we've got a good collection of illustrators here, why not give it a go on here. This is a project I've now set for myself so I will try my best to upload a doodle a day, so please feel free to contribute too!

    So without further a do... here's one I doodled earlier, a sorta 70 something hippy (with small hands, yes I did realise that lol)

    I had to go to my son's friends birthday party before Christmas. I usually carry my little sketch book.
    I doodled this and banged a bit colour in later. Maybe I'll work up later. I like the cowardly Knight character.:)

    crikey its all starting to sound a bit northern here, caalm down caalm down

    Thanks guys, I'm really enjoying this doodle a day thing, put your sketching to the test, rhino was the quickest at around 15 minutes, its great using a biro too because you have to get each mark right as you cant run it out

    It's my 2012 mission to spend more time sat in pubs and coffee shops (although primarly pubs...) just doodling people :D

    good mission Jimmy, wish I could spend more time in pubs and coffee shops drawing people, but until that day arrives I shall have to do with doodling in the small amount of free time I have.

    I get very little time aswell, but I spend most of it sat in the house relaxing my aching muscles :p so now i'm going to actually draw people in the flesh rather than through references and imagination

    ha. yep its always the best way, apart from when people start pointing as you look a tad like a pervert staring at people lol

    My time in pubs is rarely (if ever) dedicated to doodling people... Though it's an interesting thought. I have doodled people in train stations, to much more potentially varied effect. Have you ever people-watched in a train station? You get all sorts.

    yep all the time, its always good to do it sitting in the window of a coffee shop
