Here is your doodle of the week. More of my own personal hieroglyphs.
I find the abstract shapes and forms that I doodle more interesting than any of my more traditionally representative drawings. Why do I make these repeating forms? Why do I arrange them in such an orderly fashion?
They look like an alphabet of sorts. The alphabet is made up of a bunch of agreed upon symbols that represent sounds, aka letters. Do these shapes represent sounds or language? I don't think so. I don't think they are so linear. I know that geometric doodles are supposedly the product of logical and disciplined thinkers. I don't think that way. Ask anyone who knows me. I am an intuitive thinker and I rarely go from A to B to C. A mind map of my thoughts would look more like A to H back to D and over to S.
I am starting to suspect that they represent emotion. Could that be true? I am not certain. I only make them when I am not thinking about it and focusing my attention on something else.
This week's doodle is another mixed bag. I don't really like this page as a whole, but I do like the component parts I have here.
The top doodle is a random design which I find pleasing.
Then, we have your basic medallion image. Since I am always trying to figure out what my subconscious is trying to tell me through these random acts of drawing, perhaps I ought to be using the term Mandala which has a more spiritual and important aspect.
Finally there are a bunch of random images which are neatly ordered, giving them the appearance of hieroglyphics. If only I could find some sort of Rosetta Stone to give me the key!
Anybody out there able to provide me with any clues?
Very detailed doodles are often drawn by people who have an obsessive nature, and who simply will not let go of their ambitions or loved ones. They are also likely to be jottings of highly introverted people
Ouch! I might be hurt, if I make absolutely every single kind of doodle mentioned. And then some. So what does that mean? Multiple personalities?
Have you ever heard of a Droodle? It is a riddle drawn as a doodle.
Q: What is this doodle?
A: A whale about to floss.
If you feel the need to interpret your doodles, I tend towards interpretations that make me laugh.
I don't feel the need to figure them out any more than I feel the need to have my dreams interpreted. I am content to allow them just to be, and to enjoy them on a visual level.
But it is fun to check it out, just like reading your horoscope. And you do that too don't you?
Pickings are slim this week. Lots of painting, little doodling. I like this one. It looks calligraphic, a rune or a letter in a foreign alphabet. As an image it could be protecting something, shooting something, crowning something, covering something, capturing something, hiding something or presenting something. It might be a seed, a bud, a crown or a hairdo. There is lots of fun to be had with this one.
