Doodling is easy, right?

Lately, I’ve found comfort and inspiration in doodles. These are my favorites on Twitter:

After finishing a delightful Sarah’s Scribbles book, I decided doodling would become my new hobby. Doodling will give me joy and purpose! I will spread laughter and cheer!

So I watched a few YouTube videos on Adobe Illustrator. I can totally do this!

I realized I could make an amazing infographic to help explain The Histamine Bucket metaphor for mast cell disease. I’ll doodle an infographic that is so informative that everyone in the world will understand MCAS!

I opened my laptop and got to work. I love new projects!

A hour passed. THIS PROGRAM DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!

 The result:

First doodle

I don’t think I’ll be educating the world about MCAS by doodles any time soon. That squiggle in the upper left is just spite.

But I didn’t give up. Because failing at doodling is embarrassing.

I figured out how to use the shape tool, but only the shape tool. I am a brilliant shape wizard!

The result:

Poodle doodle

That’s actually a fairly cute poodle. Unless you have a phobia of poodle and spider crossbreeds. 

 My quest for a new hobby continues.
