'Doodle' illustration exercise

Today I thought I'd share with you a 'doodle' illustration exercise.

I have been having a 1:1 Create A Book For A Child class in my home. Today we played around with different creative exercises. The purpose of doing these exercises is to get the creative juices flowing and let go of needing to be right.

Here is a simple but effective doodle illustration exercise.

Step 1:
Take a piece of plain paper and put a couple of haphazard lines on it.

Step 2:
Create a picture out of the lines.

Below you can see photos of my student's (Hanna) and my doodle exercises.

This exercise is really fun and only takes a few minutes. Why not try it out yourself?
