On August 17 2010 I decided that to get my creative juices flowing again I would doodle my way thorough the alphabet. My plan was to do a letter a day but by the time September 8 rolled around I was up to “F” ; it’s like I dropped off of the face of the earth which isn’t too far from how I was feeling. Sometime in early November I started looking into Fibonacci and the Golden Mean, now I had used the Fibonacci number sequence; 1-1-2-3-5-8-13 in weaving but that didn’t go too far as weaving really isn’t my thing but now I was looking into his sequencing in what is know as the golden mean more like doodling. On Dec 27 I got an email linking me to Lori Greenburg’s blog; http://lorigreenberg.com/blog/ I was signed up to Lori’s blog because she is a lampwork artist and does a really good blog with great pictures which I hoped would inspire me in my lampworking , anyway her blog on Dec 27 was all about Mathematical doodling and she had a link to Vi Hart’s blog http://vihart.com/doodling/ . I have spent hours watching Vi’s videos and doodling along but that too passed. On Jan 13 2011 Lori posted a link to a real time doodle session and mentioned ZenTangle. At about the same time another friend mentioned ZenTangle videos on youtube which I then went hunting for and found oodles of and they are great fun.
I find the timing of this all very interesting because on Jan 12 2011 I had started my alphabet doodling again. So now I’m going to show you some pictures of my latest doodles, if you haven’t already left because this was way to boring for you to follow me in my doodling adventure.
Now if I haven’t bored you too much go check out Vi’s blog and Lori’s
