Last year I started created my MAD Doodles and they were exclusively created on 11"x14"Bristol Paper with Sharpie pens. Most of them were black and white, with a few colors mixed in every now and then. A few weeks ago, it struck me, why not try and do my doodles as paintings?! Duh, haha! So, I created the first two doodles on 19"x24" recycled bristol paper and LOVED the way they turned out. But, then I got to thinking how it would be even cooler to create them on 16"x20" stretched canvas with the sides painted the same as the underlay background, and so my new MAD Doodles have evolved into what I am creating now.
I usually paint them in the morning to get the creative juices flowing. They are fun, graffiti style PoP Art paintings that just allow me to go with the flow. They are also a practice in color combinations and design elements that I use in all of my other artwork.
Here are some samples of the initial MAD Doodles created with Sharpie Pens
Both black and white sketches, and the paintings, are available for purchase HERE.
15% of the sale of these paintings will be donated to Global Wildlife Conservation, an organization I have collaborated with, and contribute to, to help “conserve the diversity of life on Earth".
