My plan for a few days break this week was to spend it on a wonderful stretch of the Cornish Coast having a last sail before the winter storms. Well, I got there. I even had a swim! But then a phone call from family in Exeter summoned us to help out and we jumped back in the car. So here I am with plenty of time on my hands and loads of work to do. Get on with it, Macklin, I keep telling myself. But first let me share the results of a few doodles with you. I have been sat in a cold boring corridor for hours doodling and wondering about my next project for college in which I am meant to reflect back over the course so far and decide on something to take to the next stage. I am finding this difficult – so much to be improved upon! So, while reflecting, I draw. I suppose it is a form of automatic drawing. I don’t think about it, I just let the pen do the walking. Then I have been popping the doodles into Photoshop to see what happens when I mess about with them. Would be interested to know what people thing because I actually find them rather appealing. Or maybe that is just me . . . .

They’re all pretty, except the boxy one which looks more technical than decoractive as a doodle. I particularly like the lobster-conch thing. 🙂
