Here’s a quick and easy creative challenge you can do wherever you are with whatever tools you have on hand: markers, colored pencils, crayons, pens, sidewalk chalk, paintbrushes loaded with paint, whatever.
I also doodled with some markers — one of them had a smashed tip so this wasn’t any more successful than the crayons.
Even if it didn’t work exactly as I expected, it was a fun little interlude.
I could do this all day.
I have lots of different colored pens, pencils, markers, whatever, within reach whenever I’m at my desk. Maybe you could stash some colorful mark makers in a drawer and do a little multicolored doodling whenever you need a little computer break.
Have you ever tried to draw with multiple tools at once? I thought I might be able to actually draw something, but the closest I got to something recognizable was a heart that’s only really visible in one color.
If you try it, I’d love to see your results!
