When I went to college and Char was in high school, we used to write notes to each other. She's doodle at the computer and I'd doodle in class - don't worry, I had a great GPA and went to 90% of my classes (unless it was a night class then I'd have to say 65%). After the doodle was complete the process was simple: scan and email.
If you click on the photo you will be able to see it much bigger, but you still won't be able to read Charlotte's chicken scratch. I've been interpreting this handwriting for years, so I have most of it figured out...except for the one in the upper right, "Jerry, you're so calww"? My favorite part of Charlotte doodles are her people. I like the green guy.
Charlotte would get this in response:
I usually tried to hide my doodling from the professors so that they wouldn't think I was screwing around. One time my prof walked by and saw my full page doodle. He stopped teaching to comment on it. Yeah, that sucked. It's a good thing he was awesome and didn't care. Then I had to go through the whole I-need-to-keep-my-hands-busy-to-focus speech (one I have given many times and few people believe).
Doodling has been a hobby since middle school and I don't see myself ever stopping. I still doodle to stay focused and I still use the same pen I have always used - the Pilot G-2, fine tip only please. I can't doodle with any other color than black, not sure why, but it makes my brain hurt if I mix colors. I just can't do it. Not even blue, I hate blue ink. Bleck.
