Nik Daum has a wondeful set of over 200 elaborate doodles he calls “Dordles”. They range from funny to sad, dark, to light. Most are pretty weird. In his own words:
A Dordle is not quite a drawing and not quite a doodle and not quite bad. Each mark of lacerating genius is thoughtfully recorded in the margins of advertising briefs, discarded printouts, or the company stationary. The turds are then scanned, colored, composed and polished on computer. Hopefully, this preserves the playfulness and stupidity of the drawings while giving a bit more depth. Idle hands are the Dordles’s playthings, crafted from inspiration found only through boredom and profound soul-crushing dissatisfaction. I hope these dordles provide you as much excitement as what drove me to draw them in the first place.
