Author(s): Dawn DeVries Sokol
Many people want to lead more creative lives but find it difficult to make creativity a daily exercise. In Year of the Doodle, Dawn DeVries Sokol solves the problem with a year's worth of interactive prompts--starter doodles, quotes, questions and fun exercises, all on Sokol's well-loved painted backgrounds, interspersed with collaged bits of ledger, graph and notebook paper--meant to get would-be doodlers interacting with their sketchbooks daily. Opening with ideas for jump-starting the doodle habit, Year of the Doodle is not linked to a particular year like a calendar--instead, a year's worth of entries are numbered sequentially so doodlers can start and finish whenever they want to jump-start their creativity.
Dawn DeVries Sokol is the author of several doodling books, including STC Craft's Art Doodle Love, The Doodle Circle and World of Artist Journal Pages. She is also the author of Doodle Diary, Doodle Sketchbook and 1000 Artist Journal Pages. Often referred to as the "Doodle Queen," she teaches popular workshops through her blog (www.dblogala.com), at Interweave Press' Create Retreat, on Creativebug.com, and through her DVD workshop "Art Journaling: Pages in Stages."
