Doodle Week was something I started with Claire. Later, Mo joined us and helped bring in more people to doodle. Over time things wound down until I gave up on Doodle Week. I kept doodling myself, took a break for a couple of months, then started up again sometime before the holidays. It’s like a bug, you just can’t get over.
When Deanna mentioned bringing Doodle Week back as part of U3 I took a second to consider it. Taking it on again, telling people about it and trying to encourage more people who think they can’t draw to draw anyway. That’s how and why I started Doodle Week after all. As you can see, I decided to do it again. Once you doodle you can never truly go back.
The Rules of Doodle Week:
Doodle Week is like other memes online. One site hosts the event and others chime in with their contributions posted to their own blogs. Everyone who participates links back here so we can all find each other. Some will leave comments on each other’s doodles. But it isn’t a set rule, just very nice to do. We all need encouragement!
Doodle Week will be one day each week. A topic will be set for the weekly doodle. If it isn’t something that inspires you, pick something related. I will try to come up with ideas/ themes/ topics which are seasonal or at least inspiring enough to give everyone room to grow their own version of the theme. For instance, if the theme is Valentines Day, you can come up with something as simple as drawing hearts to as complex as drawing your own Valentine card to send to your favourite love.
That’s about it for the rules. Pretty simple.
