About a year ago, I started seeing a new trend. Adult colouring books! At first, I thought they were, well, you know, “adult” colouring books. Like, in terms of A LOT of skin and birthday suits.
But I’ve been educated!
Oh what a pointless burden!
I did not find the experience relaxing at all. I find adult colouring books boring and stressful. All the fine details that need to be coloured in drives me nuts. And I’m not a detail-oriented person. Adult colouring books just don’t work for my personality.
Doodling is my adult colouring book…
As I was putting together a series of slides for an upcoming presentation, I’ve stumbled upon the art of doodling and sketching. I’m find this method of creativity much more fun and relaxing.
I bought a sketch book and checked out the following books from the library to help as I perfect my doodling skills:
- Dan Roam’s Show and Tell
- Sunni Brown’s The Doodle Revolution
I lose all track of time when I sit down and doodle. My inner child is so happy since she gets to colour and play, while my adult self is satisfied because I’m doing work.
