    Personally I think of a doodle as a quick absent minded drawing you do when your mind is on other things, these drawings have all had alot of thought and time poored into them and so I would'nt concider any of them to be doodles.

  8. Hermitbiker says:

    …. ok, so these are doodles…. hmmmm…. nothing like the mindless creations I ever made…. way too much thought put into these…. but ok, they are “doodles”…. if you say so !!

  9. TekManiac says:

    What happens if the global warming is not real and Al Gore and his friends make billions due to the “Green” Tax and fees?

  10. Ridhuan says:

    Wow very beautiful and creative.. I used to doodle when I was younger but now I rarely do that. I hope to see more of things like these. Good job to the authors and to the blog owner for collecting them.

  11. bonniepap says:

    Doodling is like meditation… You loose yourself in whatever your creating and just let your mind wander.

  12. ande says:

    yeah, what if co2 is good for the planet?

  13. paulbrisske says:

    Really cool stuff, you should check out my buddy's Flickr, I think you'd appreciate it.


  14. Clarissa says:

    Don't place limitations on great minds because you chose to do so to your own.

  15. madeline says:

    love it

  16. Hermitbiker says:

    …. whew, sounds like I struck a nerve…. perhaps I did forget to say that I thought they were pretty cool, on my previous post…. 🙂 !! My only real limitations in my life seem to be: dealing with people who seem to take offense at every little thing that is said…. just because they thought I was putting these “doodles” down…. doodles have actually have come a long way over the last 50 years !! 🙂 LMAO !!

  17. cab says:

    these all are OK at best, most of them are pretty easy to do. jdfy333 was pretty good but the rest really were nothing special

  18. Kevin says:

    are you a professional artist? why do you insist on criticizing the artwork when they’re all pretty interesting.

  19. ravensomers says:

    Ikr im a retard. hit me!!!!

  20. DWes says:

    are you a professional critic?why do you insist on questioning opinions when they're all pretty subjective.

  21. Alyssa says:

    These are great, all of them are so different! A bit of personality in each doodle. Love it 🙂

  26. TIm says:

    Are you a professional hippy? Why do you insist on trying to make people like each other all the time? 😉
