This weekend's challenge is inspired by one of my doodling heroes - Kai Skye (a.k.a. Brian Andreas) - who says that sometimes when he needs inspiration for writing and doodling he does this.
Day 1: Wavy Lines
Using a pencil, gray marker, or fine pen, draw a series of parallel lines on a page with your non-dominant hand (we want them to be wavy). You want to see these but they shouldn't overwhelm the page. Think of this as a meditation, not a drawing exercise.
Day 2: Flair
Slowly fill in these lines with words that come to you. Use a bigger, darker marker for the letters. Write slowly and deliberately. It is okay if they don't make sense. Think of this as a meditation, not a writing exercise.
Day 3: Doodles
Color in any letters that make a closed shape - like the middles of A, B, D, P. You can use the same colors or alternate colors. Add doodles around your writing. Draw anything that comes to mind for you.
Share a photo of your doodle on social media and in the Doodle & Flow online community!

It's about insight, not art.
Doodle & Flow is a process that is designed to put you in a "flow" mindset and help you tap your intuition, your creativity by allowing your mind to wander, gently. The flow space allows your spontaneous brilliance to emerge, so please do not get caught up in the drawing and art-making of Doodle & Flow. This is about process, not product. Allow yourself play and see what arises!
