Doodling Through Life

BY BECKI CHAN
@ VOL 28 ON JAN 21, 2014

Drawing is a conduit that carries thoughts and ideas into reality. Rather than describing things as they are, freehand drawing can describe them as they are thought of and remembered. As an artist and a designer, Becki Chan shares her thoughts about doodling. She demonstrates how ideas and inspiration come from everything and everywhere, and how her approach to drawing applies them to a design process.
