The art of doodling

The air filled with the mist of monotony. None, stand in the room except for one, with words flying out of a mouth that ought to be shut. The words swirl around you unable to penetrate the shield caused due to sheer boredom. You shuffle restlessly to avoid the discomfort of sitting on the hard desks of wood. The mind unlike the body is idle. Idle...I don't think so. The eyes glimpse at the door waiting for someone to interrupt the speaker. Then they look at the hands go by and wondering as to why time doesn't fly when you want it to. The ears fringe against the sound of the chalk shrieking against the board. The hand fiddle with a writing instrument. Alas, the weapon touches the plain white sheet, and then the magic begins. The pen (I prefer pencils) moves as if it were possessed by something other than your mind. Its sweeps and glides across the corner of your sheet to create a piece of one of the most simplest forms of art. Simple, due to its lack of meaning. The doodle!!

The best part of doodle art is that you do not have to be an artist to do it. Even a tiny squiggle qualifies as a doodle. Thats the beauty of it.

But in today's world, doodle art no longer requires a piece of paper and pen or pencil. With today's technology, it can be done at any point of the day by just pulling out your smart phones! Here is a doodle I created using an app on my phone. This is the same app I used in my previous post "My first try at digital art!". Isn't technology great?
