MY DOODLES

You know, those little drawings that you do while talking on the phone, sitting on a bus or train or while you’re in a meeting. Sometimes those doodles are just nonsensical scribbles and sometimes they are masterpieces of art.

I recently joined a group of creative individuals who in like-mind wanted to exchange these little works of doodle art. Within weeks doodles were doodled and mailed out by the deadline April 15th.

I have since received many doodles from across the US and from Canada. The thrill of getting small art pieces from people that I’ve never met face-to-face has been a blast and a not to say the least an inspiration and jolt to my own creativity.

For more information about how it all started check out the Doodle Swap Blog. Contact Mary, she’s the head mistress of the Doodle Swap.

Here’s the original thread started at the HOW Magazine Lounge Forum.

You can also see all the cool doodles that we have exchanged with each other at the Doodle Swap Group Flickr account.

Frozen In Time

What would you do if people around you suddenly froze on the spot? Well Improv Everywhere wanted to see what kinds of reaction they’d get if they had over 200 Improv Everywhere Agents freeze at the same time at New York’s Grand Central Station Main Concourse. Watch the video to find out for yourself. (Thank you Tamar for sharing this).

For more wacky fun check out Improv Everywhere’s Missions page. They’ve been very busy.
