I'm a doodle bug. No doubt about it. You could tell how boring a college or high school class was by how many doodles I had in the margins of my notebooks. This continues to this day and if I'm in a meeting and have a pen or pencil in my hand and am taking notes I'll probably also be doodling.
I was sorting though some one of my collected art/doodle bins and pulled this great example out. At the time I was working as a fisheries observer and was stationed shore side at a plant. The page below was part of a large blotter sheet that was on the observers desk for taking notes etc. And luckily for me there were even dates of incoming fishing boats written down so I didn't even have to try and remember what year this is from.
I have a large format scanner, but even it wasn't large enough to fit the whole sheet on, but I was able to get the majority of cool doodles. Below is the complete scan, but I've divided it up below to get a closer look at some of the doodles and what was going on in my mind
In the upper left hand corner I've got a rocket man and some kind of muscly monster. Spacemen and monsters are still some favorite things to doodle.
A sketch of a werewolf. I tend to come up with ideas for comics and start sketching out character ideas and writing plots and stuff and then never do anything with them. There's also a fax number, which might have been the fax number at the plant and a website to a now bankrupt company I was interested in investing in and a duck face.
Probably the best doodle on the page. One of my comic ideas involved little robots I just called 'Bots. I have hundreds of pages of doodles, notes, and ideas or them. There also appears to be some kind of star gate and a bomb.
Up above the bomb we have some kind of energy beam and it looks like a doodle of my observer partner picking his nose, which I think he added boobs to. We also have the date of an arriving vessels and I can date the sheet to 2002, since I routinely tore these sheets off to get a fresh drawing surface.
And lastly we get to the bottom right corner. Some faces, the word evil, some notes and a plane. The voodoo head in the center was a idea I had after reading Scud: The Disposable Assassin, actually I think the comic was Tales from the Vending Machine in which the world of Scud was explored with different Scud models. I think you could write in with ideas and Rob Schrab might use them for a story. My idea was for a Voodoo model hence the face.
