We’ve all been there: you look down at the end of a long phone call, dull meeting or bus journey and lo and behold, there’s an indecipherable biro scrawl of dots, love hearts, stars and whatever else happens to be lurking in depths of your psyche.
One woman has turned her – albeit far more creative – doodles into a philanthropic challenge, creating 365 doodles in as many days to raise money for homeless charity, Shelter.
Freelance designer and illustrator Stina Jones is creating a unique artwork every day for a year, while collecting donations and selling the works to raise money for charity.
Jones says, ‘I’d always loved the idea of art raising money and awareness for charities, and I’m always doodling and scribbling on scraps of paper.
‘After reading an article about 365 day art projects, I had been inspired to set myself the challenge of creating 365 illustrations over 365 days as a way to develop my skill while raising money for one of my favourite charities.’
