Definition of Doodle

“If we sketched Doodling into a family tree, it could be the cousin of comics, the child of activism, and the nephew of Graffiti (an uncle who encouraged it to sneak out of the house at night and acquire a shared addiction to big walls and the adrenaline rush of personal risk.)

A doodle is defined as an unfocused drawing, which is made almost subconsciously; the mind preoccupied or struggling to deny distraction. A doodle takes shape in the void, finding form from the shadows. Doodle as defense.”
