XLVIII

Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos

 

This past week, my head was so wrapped up at work that I couldn’t make heads or tails of the project I was working on.  Thankfully, the office whiteboard was empty of old drawings and project notes that I got to take a few minutes off to doodle.  That helped.  I was able to get off the over-thinking wheel.  That’s what I love about doodling -  you can redirect energy and focus from whatever it is you are doing and create some imagery, it doesn’t matter what it is, whatever picks your fancy at that particular moment in time – then go back and feel, if not re-energized, then at least refreshed.  Like stepping out of a stuffy building to get some fresh air.

Since most office talk around that time was centered around the upcoming Superbowl, I decided to draw the respective team’s logos and back to work I went.

Bugging Me About the Details

I’m not a big bug fan. Sure, I like the pretty ones like the butterfly, the dragonfly, and the beetle. But all bugs are interesting. Yes, I didn’t say pretty – but interesting they are. And with these three doodles I’ve come to appreciate them a little bit more. These three pieces started with me [...]
