Characters and patterns emerge translating thoughts and feelings into a visual format. Generally a name on a doodle indicates the person I was conversing with, most likely by phone. These compositions are collected not only for future inspiration but to record what happened during particular periods of time. Their raison d’être could be compared to that of a cherished collection of family photographs. The doodles often have elements or styles that show up repeatedly, similar to a musical phrase in a melody.
