KINDNESS WARRIOR 

Have you ever been in a meeting where you saw someone absentmindedly scribbling on a paper instead of listening to the presentation? Did you think they were being rude, not paying attention, and clearly not interested in what was going on? You couldn’t have been more wrong.

Doodling is a very powerful tool, especially for creatives. It’s a way for the mind and body to remain engaged in what’s going on. If you talk to someone who doodles while you are chatting with them, they are engaging in their more creative side of their brain. They are looking for answers and inspiration. In fact, some of the most successful people have been doodlers, including past presidents.

Doodling isn’t just about drawing on a paper, it can take many forms. There are several types of doodlers you’ll find, including:

  • Word doodlers
  • Abstract doodlers (like me)
  • Picture doodlers
  • Landscape doodlers
  • People/places doodlers

On this week’s episode of Creative Warriors we have a special guest, Sunni Brown. Sunni is the leader of the Doodle Revolution, and has been bringing back an ancient art form. She shares her creative expertise on a visual language that predates our written and spoken communication skills. Download this episode today to see how some scribbles can help impact your creative side!
