For the past couple of years I’ve been a church doodler. It all started out with scribbling on the church programs using a black Faber-Castell brush pen. I liked the challenge of drawing within the limited white spaces of the bulletin. When I finished, the doodles looked as if they were part of the print!
As of recent, I’ve converted to a small sketch book. What prompted the change was that the one time that I really felt like doodling during the service. I didn’t have a church program nor did I have any old ones stashed away. I did, however, find a random piece of paper and immediately started using that. It was fun being able to draw on a blank space without being hindered by surrounding print.
I’ve been using the same pens that I used for life drawing (see previous post), often interchanging colors as I write out the words. The sketches are made to further drive the point of the sermon. It’s been a lot of fun doodling notes in a sketchpad and it’s even captured the attention of some of the ministerial staff.
So here are a few weeks’ worth of my notes! Enjoy!
