Book doodle #2

I love painting, but there's something about holding a pen and putting it to the paper that I find so satisfying. I think it's a connection with writing, my first love.


I combined writing with doodling this time around and began drawing on book pages that I'd ripped out for a canvas I'm working on. I love how the doodle juxtaposes the linear text of the page. The edges where I've ripped it from the book have been cropped out because they looked funny in the scan. (This is a scan, not a photo.)


I've saved a few extra pages from the canvas project so that I can doodle some more. I've also found a few other books to doodle in.


I'm undecided on whether or not to offer these up on etsy or not.
