Global Doodling by Pochi-mochi Global Doodling by Pochi-mochi
Recently it feels like the world has been particularly chaotic. Stress, anxiety, fear, sickness..etc Especially because of the economic recession and whatnot. Personally, family problems, financial issues, and adjusting to my first year of college have been the sources of my personal problems.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could just stop, sit down and doodle a bit?

I'd like a doodling session with the world. :] It's quite therapeutic, really. Even those that don't consider themselves artists often find relief in etching stick figures on their notes, agenda, lab paper..etc.

This also relates to my career choice, as I am currently a freshman nursing major. Despite its arduous nature I think its a very rewarding job. It's nurses that directly aid the sick and help them adjust to the clinical environment. They bring relief.

I hope that in the future I can help people in the same way doodling has aided me during times of stress and emotional turbulence.

Morever I think this theme is extremely prevalent to the contest, because digital art allows artists to gather together internationally and deviantart is pretty much the closest thing to 'global doodling' as any site can get + the products wacom provides are great tools for any person interested in digital graphics.

Thank you for reading. :]

Wow, that's actualy a really good idea. If we could have one in England - 'Doodle Day' maybe - England could be much less stressful.

You're right. When my mind goes crazy art is what calms me down. I had a mental breakdown at school once and the only thing that got me to stop crying long enough to get my shit back together was to sit down and draw for an hour.

This is kind of messy and thrown together but it fits well with your theme of doodling. The colors are muted and dull but those splashes of light illuminate everything and reminds me of my childhood when I used to sit outside and look at the stars. It always filled me with awe and hope, and I do indeed hope that everything will get better. A spring always comes after winter. Congratulations on reaching the semi-finals!
