Doodling or sketching?

Since I began sketching again a while back, I have found that thinking about art has become more and more of a constant occupation! On days when I have to spend long hours on teleconferences or have to wait between flights while on business travel, I can experiment with all kinds of images whether from my imagination or drawn from the surroundings. All that is needed, as in the current post, is a pen or pencil and a scrap of paper no matter how big or small.

Perhaps it is just my imagination, but sketching while my mind is focused on something else (such as a long phone call) seems to free up the hand and allows much looser strokes. It is also pretty efficient use of time and perfectly in the zeitgeist of our times where multi-tasking is a badge of pride.........
